    You all know that Big Mama, one of my Silkies, hatched two eggs Sept 21st and that at a month old I put all three back in with the flock........well, hubby and I have been busy in the run, building the Silkies a new coop (the old one keeps getting damp in the rain). Chrissie Hynde has been in broody land for two weeks and I have a temporary run, so thought this would be a good time to try and break Chrissie out of broodiness, so put all the flock in the temp run WITHOUT a nest box ( so hubby could work on the coop without Rooster swiping him). I looked in there, this afternoon, and Chrissy has a baby under each wing! Big Mama ( the feroucious ( how do I spell that?) one is doing just fine and seems glad of the help! Now, THAT, is just AMAZING to me! What a great world we live in!

    Isn't that great! Guess you don't have to break her of broodiness now. Got a picture?
