    A week ago i had a late hatching egg, both of my hens refused to claim it, so it came home with me. I put it in with my month-old silkie figuring she was the calmest of my older babies so that it would have a friend. They get along great. Then tonight i had to move my just-hatched babies out of their brooder as they were trampling the newest since they were all born yesterday/this morning and can walk around.

    well, i put them in with the silkie... and now the poor thing has 4 little babies following it everywhere going "Momma! Momma! Momma! Come back Momma!"

    [​IMG] i can't help but [​IMG] watching this... poor little Regan is NOT happy with me... but she's tolerating them! [​IMG]

    For a moment I thought it had ended badly. I'm glad it didn't.

    And, yes: Pictures please!
