    Poor Momma Tina needed some "me" time, so we put her out with the adults and put her babies in the chicken tractor. They are three weeks old. BTW, all these babies are up for adoption! [​IMG]

    Here's Tina enjoying a much needed dust bath.

    There are seven in all. 2 are half black bantam cochin/half bantam partridge cochin, 2 are half black bantam cochin/half black silkie, and 5 are Buttercups.
    The Buttercups were born the same day via bator as the black babies (hatched by Tina), so we put the Buttercups in with her and she adopted them.
    I would love to keep them all, but I have to give away all the cochin/cochin mixes and at least three Buttercups.

    Aww..sure wish I was closer. I'd definitely adopt a few of them.

    Love the pics.
