    I got Iris and Hazel about 22 days ago. Iris came to me broody, her and her sister Hazel went into a seperate mini coop all to their selves, I shoved a bunch of eggs under her and she sat.
    Day 18 was friday, her last chick hatched this morning, she has 9 chicks and is an awesome Mama. Hazel is co-existing with them just fine.

    Very Nice! The chicks look so small! Are they bantams? I love the little black mohawk on the one. [​IMG]

    Quote:They are all LF, they just hatched last night & this morning, I was really surprised she brought them out of her nest this soon, but I guess it was warm enough and she was ready to do some walking after sitting for so long.

    Quote:She is a mix. I think part Barred Rock, Part EE. Her and Hazel are from the same hatch

    Iris and Hazel hatched here, two very happy accidental crosses, EE roo x BR hen. Iris has been broody several times a year. I sold them when downsizing a couple years ago and now they're living with Karen. Iris is just the best mama and Hazel has brooded chicks at least once.

    Quote:They are getting along very well. I hated to split them up since they have always been together so figured Hazel would be fine with Iris and Chicks.

    Iris is a beautiful hen! I love the little white one with the huge muff and the black stripe on it's head! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
