    How chickens spread. Moosehillfarm's two Buff orps had a little chicky baby.
    Jody (HinkJC) sent me eggs last year that we hatched. We gave a pair to
    Moosehillfarm who just had this precious little chick.

    It's the chain of chickens.... [​IMG]

    That BO is one gorgeous hen! Mine looks so shabby right now, maybe she needs a bath.

    Quote:She is such a good mama! Tonight for the first time since the hatch I found her roosting on a ladder in the coop. Usually she's on the floor with chickie. I got scared until I saw chick's head peeping out from under mama. How she managed to get the chick up there is beyond me, but mama knows best.

    The chain of chickens goes on and on...[​IMG]

    Those chicks learn how to get up on things pretty high up when really young. The problem will be getting down, LOL
