    Maiden momma Tina is doing great with her four little ones that hatched on Sunday and Monday. Yesterday, five of my Buttercups hatched (via bator) and Tina took them as her own! [​IMG] She is such a great mom. I love it!!
    Here are some pictures from today. The little ones are out and about now!

    Thank you, everyone!!! Tina is really one of a kind. She is a bantam Partridge Cochin and she is a GREAT mom. I really think that's what she was born to be... a broody mommy!
    The first day, she was really protective and wouldn't let us near her, but now she's good about letting us take pictures and hang out. She watches with a close eye if we put our hand in the brooder, but the chicks are so friendly and so curious!
    DH and I are getting so much joy out of watching this little family and all the love that Tina has for these babies.
    I was crying at work today (after reading more news re. the Virginia Tech shooting) but coming home and watching these little things has reminded me of all the good in the world.
    I'll get off my sappy soap box now! [​IMG]
