My Golden Laced Wyandotte went broody awhile back, and I allowed her to hatch out chicks for the first time. Tuesday of this week,(Aug. 13th) she became the proud mamma to 5 baby chicks. Too bad that 2 of those were killed Thursday evening while roaming with her when they got too close to where our goat was hanging out and were stepped on. Now its Friday and I just found out tomarrow is chick day at our local farm supply store. So here goes. Im gonna go buy 3-5 chicks and see if I can get her to adopt them. I know its crazy to introduce chicks this many days after her own have hatched, and they will probably end up in a brooder box, but I think its worth trying out. So I thought some folks may have had some experiance with this type of thing or might just be interested in how it turns out, and if it goes well what exactly was done. Im planning on sneaking them in of an evening when she is sleepy anyway... I'll update Saturday evening or Sunday! Here's hoping I can get my hen to take over some of the work of expanding our flock!!
