My broody hen, Olivia, just snapped out of her motherly trance today, left her three chicks in the pen, squatted for my cockerel, Zane, even though he was in a separate pen and then left. I found an egg in the nestbox of the Firetower coop where they have been living together. SO, three 6-wk-old chicks are motherless as of today. We took Zane and Charlotte's little daughter Panda, her blue banty Cochin buddy and GLW in to meet the two-week-older chicks. They are back in a separate cage right now for the night, but tomorrow, I think the six will be living together. Here's a couple of pics from my time in the pen, referreeing the little hoodlums. Here are Virginia and Victoria, the SLW girls, first. They are starting to look their breed now. The BR boy is Hawkeye's last son that I have, Mace. Couldnt get one of Panda that wasn't blurred badly.
