OK this is a thread for all of your funny or touching chicken stories. I have quite a few and I'm sure others do to. I'll start. Gypsy King's acceptance My hamburg rooster ,Gypsy King, was in a pen I made for my sumatras. He was in there because he was smaller than all the other chickens and was being picked on by the younger roosters. He had a harem of 4 Plymouth rocks. When I put the rocks in for the night he wasn't there, panicking, I looked everywhere for him. Giving up I went to check on the broody hen named Big Momma . She had been nesting in the goat shed for the past few night with her brood. But what I saw surprised me. Gypsy King was under Big Momma! He had booted all of the chicks out and they were nestled next to their mom. He did that for the next few nights until I fixed where he was getting out of and now he sleeps with his harem. The best chicken mom ever Big Momma is now sleeping in the coop with her brood. I have just introduced some older chicks into the flock. Most of them did not like it and tried to escape (many succeeded) but when I put the in the coop they stayed in. But when my mom put them in for the night (my toe was busted and was poen and raw and I didn't want it to get infected) she only saw 2 of the older chicks in the coop, but you'll never guess where they were. They were under Big Momma! So my mom went out to get the rest of them and as soon as they went in they all huddled under her. So now our broody hen has 3 sizes of chicks . Now come on everyone post some of your chicken stories.
