My last hen hatched a batch of 18 babies! She had her nest hidden really well (but I knew where it was) She was well covered behind a log and under brush,but I was still worried. Sunday morning she topped the log with the keats following her and the Rooster bringing up the rear. I hearded them to the coop for safety, but mom and dad refused to follow. I have all the babies in the coop, in a brooder, under the light and one side screened off just in case momma comes back. Mom and dad have yet to come back in. I feel just awful taking them from her but last night we had 2" of rain and its 50F out. She would have taken them out to eat in the wet grass and they would all be dead. They are all so cute!
