    Thought I'd share a picture of my new little addition, hatched by my first ever broody hen:

    The hen is an Australorp and the chick is an Andulusian.

    One day old...

    My daughter named the momma Keyblade and wants to name the baby Key. [​IMG]

    Here's hoping it's a pullet ...[​IMG]

    Really adorable pics, Chirpy!
    I'm going through the same thing with my broody Australorps.
    I guess that breed really is a broody one!
