    My DH...what a sweet man. He went from being ok if I got a few (like 5) hens to 30. We just hatched 4 new babies out and now we have another broody. The first 4 we obtained from another chicken owner by posting on craiglist that I was just looking for 4 because my broody hen was small and I didn't want her having alot under her to worry about. Well the day she hatched her eggs her sister goes broody and my DH being the sweet guy he is says "why don't you give her some eggs to" [​IMG] I couldn't believe it. He said "but that's the last one, he don't wanna heat the barn all winter. So I put 4 of my own eggs under her and these eggs ought to be interesting to say the least. Without further ado my new babies...And some I got 5 weeks ago at an auction.

    And my auction babies [​IMG]
    The rooster is already mean and probably won't be around much past twelve weeks [​IMG]

    Oh and here's a pic of my other broody hen. Good thing I don't have an incubator [​IMG]

    What pretty chickens! I love the colorful one that you got from the auction!

    So mama hens will let their babies crawl all over them?

    Thank you for the compliments. I must say my frizzles are the friendliest birds, even nicer/tamer than my silkies. Once it drys out I will have to get pics of them, they are very pretty.
