so happy to say that my VERY broody hen has finally had success with becoming a mama. On exactly 21 days out, I went to do my chicken chores and two sweet babies popped up next to my bantum hen. They are not her eggs but after her first try with three was unsuccessful, I decided to give her two fresh eggs from other chickens. They are pretty big for her but she's making do. Thought I would share a sweet picture. It is a great word picture for Psalm 91:4 for those who read scripture. Would love advice on how long I should keep hen with peeps. I know to keep peeps away from flock til feathered out and then introduce them slowly to the rest of the crew...but how about taking them from mom? Does it matter when? Also, when I do put mama back with the flock, should I introduce her slowly as she has been away for 6 weeks.
