    We gave this Broody Momma a miracle. Her golf balls "hatched" and she found herself a new Momma to 3 baby chickies. 2 of the chicks died in the first 2 days, but she still has this one healthy strong chick. Here are the pictures of their first day out in the yard. BTW she is a 1 yr old Black Austrolorp which we hand raised, and this is her first time being a Mom.
