Baby Chicks

We had 4 hens hatch out chicks this summer.  The boys noticed the hens go broody and were able to separate them and place them in their own small chicken tractor so predators didn’t bother them.  Within a few weeks each hen hatched out a batch of chicks.  I think we have about 24 new chicks running around here.  We have several more broody bantam chickens so we are awaiting to see if they are successful.  It’s always exciting to see the farm replicate itself and provide new animals instead of us buying them 😉
