Two Mamas and a Baby


I don't know if you can see it, but the Biddie is between the two hens. Isn't that cute. Hopefully, these two can take care of this one Biddie.

The Wyandotte, the hen on this side was setting in the shed for two weeks before the Americana decided she want to set in that same spot.

They did that for several day and I moved the Wyandotte over and gave her two eggs and the Americana two eggs.
One of the Americana's eggs hatched Sunday, so I gave the other egg to the Wyandotte. The Americana just came back and they both kept setting on the same eggs.



No more hatched out. So this morning the two hens got off the eggs and share the baby.


The little baby seems like it is fine with this arrangement. Who would have thought.

Love the photos and story. Seems like there is a children's book in the works here.
