One of my Cochin hens is broody, 2 of her eggs have hatched, I also hatched 7 Barred Rocks yesterday. I stuck 2 chicks under the hen last night and checked this morning she is doing very well with them. I have 5 more BR chicks in the hatcher wondering if she could handle those too? That would be 9 chicks and she is a first time broody. She is doing very good and seems to be a very loving mother. Took these pics, can't see all the chicks but what you can are the Barred Rocks, the 2 Cochins were under Mama. One Head one fluffy chick butt!
