    This is only my 2nd time letting a brooding hen hatch eggs. Normally i buy babies and raise them myself. But i wanted to see how this hen would do with raising babies. The chicks i raised myself love on me when i am in their coop. And mama is mean to me right now. Shes the oldest in my flock. I dont even know what type she is. People bring me chickens all the time when they cant handle them. I guess you can call me the chicken whisperer. Haha. [​IMG]
