    I was worrried because Lucy was very broody and the eggs she was sitting on did not hatch. So I put the babie RIRs and one speckeled maran in with her even though they are about three weeks old and she loves them as you can see!! I have now removed the old nest and put new hay in for them all and they are having a great time. I am keeping them in a separate shed for a while with the door closed so they can all bond properly. Will let them run outside in a day or two depending how they look.
