    NottinghamChicks Chillin' With My Peeps

    Hey NH Chicken Lovers, I have a free 1 yr, old broody. Her name is Olive and she is a Brabanter/Silkie mix. She is forever broody and hogs the favorite nest box. The girls are not happy with her so if you want her please let me know. I am in Nottingham which is halfway between Portsmouth and Concord. I may be able to meet you part way depending on your location. She will be happy to raise some babies for you [​IMG]

    Hey all!

    Checking in from VT, actually, but I'm right on the border with NH, Brattleboro area. Glad to see some locals! I've got 8 new(ish) chicks, four in the brooder, and four that I just put outside (it's certainly been hot enough!) I am LOVING the Cochins I just bought on Saturday, and can't wait for the rest of the girls to mature, either!

    Hi Davlyn, Olive was definately not that type of hen. She only wanted eggs and was not very nice to her sister's chicks at times. She just wanted her own little brood I think. She is doing well in her new home and there is only one other chicken that has to tolerate her little "attitude". There is a place for every chicken and now my girls are all back to laying full steam!
