so i have 10 pullets that are about 6 months old and a week or two ago i added 2 new pullets that are about 11 weeks now. so i have been integrating them and its been going okay. the last two days the little ones have been going to roost on the big girl roost. they have been sleeping by a ee named chipmunk and she had been great with them but does not want to be close and will take a swipe at them. so tonight when i was tucking them in the little ones were making a cry of sorts because of fireworks that were being shot off, so another ee by the name of sweet cheeks got off her spot and ran to them and started to cuddle with them and was being a little mom to them and even hid their heads under her wing. it was so awesome to see sweet cheeks has always been a real sweetheart (hence the name sweet cheeks) but this took it to a whole new level of sweetness. it was enough to make me cry. chickens can be so sweet!
