Reason I was asking is that the girls are 8 weeks old now and growing fast! They are HUGE! Three nights ago I locked them up late, so I got to see them all roosting Poor Momma Esther tho... she was sitting there on her roost, with her wings spread wide, snuggling <well trying to > 5 1/2 grown chicks, and the 2 buffs were ON HER BACK like they were itty bitty babies lol Her wings were extended almost full length trying to cuddle her overgrown babies I felt so sorry for her...it cant have been comfy lol But I have been in there checking late at night since then and every night the same... I'll have to try to get a pic of them all. Shouldnt she be starting to wean them or something? LOL Or will I have grown up laying chickies one day that will still think they are a day old? Never had to deal with chicks raised by mum before so this is all new to me!
