    my dad isnt sure what got it, he just saw the chicks running around chipping for their momma, we saw feathers that were her color and my dad is really angry because she was our only black breasted red oeg hen, we dont know if the chicks are all mixed or just a few are and the rest are pure breed so he's hoping he can get one ot of them

    I am so sorry to hear about your broody. Hoping all the chicks do well. [​IMG] Maybe you will get a baby just like her.
