    this little chick belongs to a brahma x hen. she laid the egg and she sat on it. but the other 9 eggs havn't hatched and i needed to take it away, but mother hen goldy who is a bantam buff broody and already had 7 chicks. she gladly accepted it. but it was a shame for the brahma x hen her name is pretty. so here are some pictures of the new chick, the hen who hatched it and goldy. the chick has been named donna after our carer for my grandmother she said it had to be called donna because it was red (she has red hair everyhwere!) and if it was a male it would be called donald [​IMG] so here are the pics....

    It's sad that the chick cant stay with her mum.
    but lucky enough that Goldy can take her in.
    I wish my hen was like that.

    How neat Goldie took in the chick! I'd be very careful of the dog--he/she's very focused on those chicks.

    Quote:yes, her chicks were a week old and she took her! dont worry about minty. she has been focused on all chooks since she could potter around![​IMG]
    she would love to have any chook i have in her mouth! if she tries and grabs them through the wire, thats when i slap her. she knows she is in trouble
