    A few months ago a friend of DH's gave us his bantams. There were 6 hens and 5 roosters. Believe it or not they all went broodie at the same time. One of the hens Rosie went missing and we thought she was gone we just found her this week . She has 8 little chicks with her. She is still hiding them in the goat pasture under one of their tables. They are only 3 days old. Will she bring them into the coop area on her own or should we try to bring them in ourselves. Right now the other hens are rasing their babies too. We now have 18 chicks running around lol

    I'm guessing she'll bring them back in her own time. However, they are certainly vulnerable to predation in their current circumstances.

    I'd sure love to see pictures!
