    Aren't they gorgeous? [​IMG]
    One of our Cochin bantams has been broody for about 6 weeks now, so we decided to give her some very young chicks so she would stop torturing herself. We've been looking for a while, but we found some! They're only three days old, born this Wednesday.

    Four sweet little Cochin bantams! The colours will be a surprise, but I'm pretty sure we've got one "pearl grey" (don't know whether this colour exists in English, I translated it literally from Dutch [​IMG]) and one white. Possibly frizzles!

    And guess what, they're already accepted by their new mommy! [​IMG]

    Aren't they the cutest? [​IMG]
    (Pictures are a bit blurry, it's turning dark out here -- still wanted to share them..[​IMG])





    As you can see, we're all very happy.. [​IMG]

    Great pictures!! They are adorable. I gave babies to a hen 2 weeks ago and might have to do it again- it is day 23 and no action from her eggs. It is so sweet how the babies are so happy to have a mommy and the mom gets so excited to think that her chicks have finally hatched.

    :schwoon!!! Those are precious babies and I hope everyone lives happily ever after. [​IMG] I have a broody on 5 eggs and I can't wait to see her hatch them out. She's gone broody too many times and really wants to be a mamma so I had to finally give in.
