Stepbantymum- chicks have 2 mums!

Discussion in 'Chicken Behaviors and Egglaying' started by bantymum, Oct 1, 2007.

  1. This is a story of 2 next door neighbours in the coop:
    1 hatched out 2 chicks.
    the other kicked hers out before hatching.
    A door was left open and they started to congregate.
    The mummy hen asked the neighbour to bantysit for her.
    The neighbour moved in and has stayed ever since.

  4. Oh windy thats fantastic, Ive had so much going on here.
    11 duck eggs wowee!!!
    By the way, the blue is a animal marking spray that I had to use to mark the correct mum!!!!!as I cant tell them apart.
    they are both whites. The babies will be buff as the roo was red!
    The mums have had a mohawk haircut so they can see where they are going, They used to bump into mikeys bikes and the clothesline etc. otherwise they had lovely fluffballs on top!!!!
    Ill keep watching out for your duck posts! good luck.

    Don't let DH know that they're chickens...they're really mutated bunnies imported from Chernobyl.
