    One of your roosters take care of baby chicks?

    I just went out to check on the chickens for the night and to see if there were any more eggs (1) anyways... BO momma only had 1 of her 4 chickies (almost 2 months old) with her in the nest box where they sleep every night. So I started looking for the other 3... they were under the coop with some of the other chickens and guineas that sleep outside of the coop (there is room for them inside the coop but they wont sleep in there, started months and months ago) so they are all snuggled together under the coop a mixture of BO's, RIR's Its a rooster (chicken noodle) and his girls and 1 or 2 of our guineas. One lil chickie came out to me and I put it in the coop with BO momma and started looking for the other 2... then I saw them all snuggled up to Chicken Noodle, guess hes taking care of them for the night. Wish I would have taken my camera out with me to get a pic. [​IMG]

    Chicken Noodle did a great job babysitting... everyone is happy this morning, those 2 chickies are still with him and the other 2 still inside with their BO Momma.
