    She will probably only take care of her two, and will want nothing to do with the other 25.

    Correct, kinda we Picked em up @ Post office this early AM :celebrate I put Box in & took Chicks out one @ a Time S-l-o-w-l-y she tried to get them All under her Little wings :lau Momma got about 6 under then she went to gather the rest Under.. . o_O over & over she tried. After a few min she started Attacking them. ? Pecking & holding down to continue to peck them.. So I put her back with main Flock. Chicks are Under Heat Lamp in Trough chirping. Banty R Cute LiL Buggers too

    Chicks R bout same size.. Maybe they were TOO MANY @ once.

    #1 Day one, Figured out Water Nipper. I had to raise it up so too see the Red Shinny part.
