We have enough chickens that we didn't even notice the eggs missing the last few weeks.  A few days ago we found one of our bantam hens sitting on these.  Based on the numbers, some must be a few weeks old.  She tries, but can't get them all tucked in under her.  Our bantam hen probably hatches 5-10 chicks for us each year.  And with our varied mix of hen and rooster breeds, it is anyone's guess what type they might be.  The poor barbie jeep was a hand me down from a friend and needs a spring cleaning, but mama hen doesn't seem to mind!

That is too cute! I would love some bantam hens and a rooster - they are so neat and tiny!

I think I am missing some back in the woods somewhere - I heard one doing her egg call and tried to search a bit, but there was too much poison ivy and thorns to get a good look. Ours have taken up with our cat's box. DH brought home and insulated shipping/storage box and cut a hole in it for our cat this winter.... they have pretty much kicked her out. I don't think I have seen her in it since they started laying in it (she's a total wuss and does NOT defend her territory at all. I have seen then chickens run her off multiple times - it seems all they have to do is look at her wrong and she takes off!).
