    I slipped her 4 pipped eggs last Saturday & she hatched them. Then about 3 days after the hatch I slipped her another chick & she accepted it.

    Yes, Lila is a very proud momma! She's really into it.... [​IMG]

    I have a few other hens that are getting into it too, they are sitting in the boxes & laying on eggs.....I think this will be a very busy summer with lots of baby chicks! [​IMG]

    Nothing sweeter than watching a mama hen with her chicks. I was wondering what kind of hen she is also. She's beautiful.
