    Thought you would like to see my broody with her day-old chicks. They are just too cute and what a patient hen. She deserves an award for broody of the year, right?

    Here is the video: http://tinyurl.com/3qbcdkg

    And
    here are some pictures.

    Since we will enter her and the chicks in our county fair, we have moved the family into their own accommodations for the next few days. The fair starts August 3rd and we are sure they will be a big hit in the poultry barn. The are in a rabbit cage in our garage for the time being.

    This hen hatched a brood last Thanksgiving. All the chicks survived and we were amazed since we were sure they wouldn't make it through a Minnesota December. She is a great mom!
