    no more yet, shes taking good care of the chick and hes protecting, but the little guy is so fast i havnt got a pick yet, ive been trying, hes really independant till he sees me, but its been in the 40s at night and shes keeping him warm, im proud of her, we`ll be adding to the pen soon , i have 4 oldr chicks on the upper level of the a-frame that need to go down,
    [​IMG] i hope they all get along, the roo sits up top and talkes to the babies up there alot, were adding 20 more feet to it,
