    My friend gave me 12 guinea eggs for Sophie (The broody ) to sit on, and 3 Lavender Keets. ( We lost one Keet. [​IMG] ) I had to put them in the same hutch and Sophie just kind of "Adopted" them! [​IMG] She gives me the "Stink Eye" look if you get anywhere near her babies or her eggs! [​IMG] I went out to check on them and the 2 keets ( Bob & Dudley ) were all snuggled under her! I couldn't believe it! [​IMG] She is an awe-some mommy! [​IMG] Way To Go Sophie! [​IMG]

    I know! [​IMG]
    Even when she wasn't broody she'd be walking around and she'd be staring down the other chickens giving them the "Stink Eye" look! lol
    I do not know which keet is Bob or Dudley but who cares! [​IMG]
    Oh, forgot to say that Sophie also has 1 chicken egg under her due Sunday - but as soon as it hatches I'll take it away.
