    My oldest hen, Jezebel the fearsome, decided to go broody out of the blue almost a month ago, so rather than try the cold water dunking thing, my neighbor who raises chickens too, had a bunch of just-laid fertile eggs, so went and got a few and put them under her. Right on cue 21 days later, out popped 8 little bundles of fuzzy cyootness. These are the first chicks we've hatched, proud mama and babies doing well!

    Got any new mama/baby pics to post? (Forgive me if there's already a thread on this subject, please feel free to merge this one in if so)

    Look at her so protective of her chicks! She's a very pretty hen.
