    Do the neighbors want the hen and chicks back? I think Mama is an easter egger. Do you know what color eggs were in the nest? The fenced area she is in is not safe for her or the chicks, than can squeeze through the openings and escape to danger. Predators can get through there also.

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. I agree with drumstick diva; mama looks like an Easter Egger. X2 on your birds pen not being safe from predators either. There is a good article at http://www.the-chicken-chick.com/2013/07/11-tips-for-predator-proofing-chickens.html on protecting your chickens from predators. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your flock.
