I had Bantams when I was a child, so I bought 10 straight run, not knowing the breeds either. I ended up with more roosters than hens. I have 2 small hens that are quite clever. I collect the little eggs and feed them to my barn cats. The little gold hen always tried to peck me and not move off her eggs, being so small it wasn't hard to get them away from her, but she tried her hardest to be a mommy. One day I was out feeding and collecting, I heard peep peep peep. There was only one place this could be coming from, and there they were. Seven newly hatched chicks. I could fit them all in one hand. So tiny and so cute. SHe had found a little nook inside the wall to keep her eggs from being collected. She came out to eat so I never thought she was nesting. So I can be outsmarted by a chicken.
