What beautiful pics, momma and babies!!!
Awww... How sweet and Nugget really looks like she is being such a great mama!
More baby pictures for you who love broodies.
I know I've said this before, but...
So beautiful I am so happy she waited till spring and went. Those chicks are going to be beautiful I hope they are girls so Panda can have some brothers and sisters.
They're all sooooo cute! I have the fever... that one of my girls will go broody before I go out and buy some chicks!!
Oh, now I want one of my girls to go broody even though I don't need any more chickens.
They are so sweet and Nugget looks so calm and motherly.
Cyn, they are so cute! Is that a blue barred I see?
She looks like my buff orpington that's raising babies right now, too! My buffy girl Millie is the first broody I've ever had; she hatched some eggs of her own (and a few of her sister's), and readily accepted the OEGB babies and silkie babies I hatched (also MY first broody!!! ) inside. She's taking care of 13 -- 8 BO/BO or RIR/BO, 3 Silkies, and 2 OEGB BBred bantams. I have her separated from the other chickens & guineas in a large wire holding pen wrapped in aviary net, but one of the original 3 BBred babies slipped through even the tiny space (1/2 " squares) of the net and has disappeared. I fear it has been dispatched by one of the nosy and aggressive guineas. They snatched one of the first of her 4 babies, which is why I put them in the wire pen.
