|The ceiling was open to the loft, so we jammed some hay down and blocked the wind.|
|We found them like this in the morning|
|This was taken before the nest was put in|
|The other side of the barn had 1 large pen that we divided into 2 temporary homes|
|1 smaller pen and 1 larger pen|
|The smaller pen for the Brahma Roo and 8 ISA Brown hens|
|Louie, the Jersey Giant and his ISA Brown and Buff Orpington/ISA cross hens|
|"Crystal" our Silkie gets 5 tiny eggs to sit on|
They tucked their little baby eggs in and haven't left the nest so far. We are praying hard that they stay put and we'll hatch out around Easter weekend. The eggs will be cross breed chicks, but we don't really care right now. They were so broody, we thought they deserved a chance at it!
|These 3 are in the broody pen as well, but they don't bother the brooders|
|Jersey Giant with ISA Browns and our Buff Orpington/ISA Brown hens|
|Silkie setting in the same pen as the Cochin's|
|Leghorns and Americauna chickens together|
They get the other pen and when the ice melts I'll open their door so they can go outside too.
