Cornflake the broody GLW hen accepted our six new hatchery chicks last night as her babies and is being a super good mommy! . I was so unbelievably nervous about introducing her to the chicks because my first thought was she was going to kill them. I have zero experience with broody hens and had no idea what to expect, but it was so, so easy. We waited until about midnight and under the cover of darkness we slipped her the first chick. The baby chirped and Cornflake clucked back, and then she just nudged it under her wing and that was that! So I gave her the other five one at a time and she did the same thing. I can't believe how easy it was! Watching her with the babies is the cutest thing in the world; I'm so happy that she went broody right as I was ordering new chicks, the timing was excellent!!
