This family showed up the other day These old girls get pretty cagey when they go broody. In secret they start stashing away eggs in a strategically placed, hidden nest. When the pile is big enough in the nest they start incubating the eggs and in 21 days later this is what you get. I don't know where the nest was or how many eggs she had but she has 7 little peeps following her around the yard. They are all different colours so I think that has something to do with the different roosters from a previous post. :) She is a very protective mom too, don't get your face anywhere near hers, she'll jump straight at it and attack you.
