This is my Black Australorp hen, Rocky. She's 4 years old, and has gone broody 3 years in a row. I wanted to add some more chickens to my flock this year, so I decided to let her raise chicks. She is an amazing mom, and she takes really good care of her 4 chicks. Her babies are 13 weeks old now, and she still sleeps with them in the nest!

Yeah my Miss Eggysness also tried to sleep the chicks in the nest for too long. So I had to close it off so they didn’t learn to sleep in the nests as adults and keep spoiling them up.
