had hatched when the next day we brought home 100 Delaware roosters (for meat birds) Well this is a picture of what happened. Unfortunately she abandoned her nest when she herd the newbies peeping next door. In the pile you can see one little black head of her chick. These were the happiest, healthiest, most well adjusted hatchery chicks ever I believe because they had a real momma. I loved watching her give "chick back rides" it wasn't uncommon to see her walking around with 3 or 4 on her back. she was wonderful with them!
