Freda's first day w/her adopted peeps! They are adjusting well.
Freda's so pretty and what a good momma she is! The chicks are adorable, too!
Such cute pics!!! I love watching mammas with thier babies.
Some hens will adopt anything Pebbles took in week old chicks, and Paka adopted 5 ducklings that actually belonged to another mamma hehe
Enjoy watching Freda and her babies!
How sweet and cute. Wish I had a broody hen, I was drooling over the chicks at the feed store today.
I have a silver laced cochin who just went broody today -i have 6 new baby banty's in the brooder in the house we got on weds, plus eggs in the bator - duck eggs due to hatch next weekend and some banty eggs - I think if the banty eggs are fertile I will slip them under my broody girl and let her finish hatching them - as soon as I find a place to move her so she is away from the other chickens.
your girl looks like she is going to make a great momma
Awww Freda looks sooo happy! lovely chicks!
I am so happy that she finally has her babies! She looks so content and I am glad that things are working out...keep us posted on them! Thanks Dixie (What breed is Freda?? )
That's very cute. She looks very happy.
The second pic is adorable!
Freda's just loving being a mom! I went to give her a few treats this morning but she just took each one and coo'd to her new peeps so that each one took a treat and ate it. Guess I best not give Freda treats until her peeps are older. I didn't realize she would encourage her peeps to eat them all & not eat them herself! What a sweet mom!
To answer your question Dixie, Freda came to me as an Australorp but if anything she is a cross. She's smaller than most of the other Australorps closer to a bantam in size, different eye color, lays small-med. tinted off white eggs, & her black feathers have more of a blue sheen than my other Australorps. DH calls her a "barnyard" chicken.
