    Hello Everyone,

    We have Orpington cross bantams with four females and a cockerel housed in an eglu and run.
    One of the pale ladies is the mother of the rest of the flock (so the seller told me when I bought them last October).

    The girls started going broody one by one over the past three weeks or so and yesterday morning we heard cheeping for the first time!

    I've just posted a question in the Newly Hatched forum about whether I should now separate the mum, surviving chick and eggs.
