    We just hatched some chicks a few days ago and our two broody hens are sharing chicks! One of them hatched two and the other one hatched one! I'm so surprised they're not fighting over the chicks! It's really cute how the chicks just run over the watermelon like a bridge back and forth to each mama! Here is pic (the chicks are tucked under mama's).[​IMG]

    Awww cute. Are they australorps? Are they good mothers. I've got a couple and I'm hoping they go broody in summer so i can tuck some eggs under her!
