Late afternoon I walked to the hen house just to talk to the chickens. I heard a little "peep-peep" from the floor. One little yellow fluff ball making that big noise! I had thought they weren't due for another week (somehow I lost a week!) I scooped her up and put in with the hen on the nest and got a good hard pecking and scolding for my troubles!
This morning she was off her nest and had 3 little peeps with her. I love diversity in color, so of course I commended her with doing a great job!
I took the water unit off the hanger and set it on bricks on the floor with a ramp so they could reach it, and threw a handful of feed into their corner. She is teaching them to eat ....
.... while standing guard. Not another hen dares go near!
