We have a 3 year old female chicken. My dad bought two babies to keep her company, She was getting thin and seemed depressed lately. Her friend recently passed away. But it has been two weeks, This girl is a HAWK around these kids. She is very protective! Wont even let us near them, Pecks at us! They are just tiny little babies and she is an amazing mother. She loves them to death, Is this normal? She is so happy, gained all her weight back and more lively than ever! I believe she believes these are "HER" babies!
