    My Buff Rock just hatched out 6 eggs (one died) from my friend that has Americuana chickens. "Rocky" went broody the end of February. I wanted to see if she would hatch out some chicks, sure enough in 20-21 days right on schedule! What a joy to see mom and kids interacting! Any helpful hints would be appreciated on raising them with other adults in the coup. I only started last May with my 4 original chicks (3 Buff Orp's) & 1 Buff Rock.
