Broody Mama in the House!
Daine with her three little babies.
The chicken house, that is. Daine sat faithfully on the three eggs I allowed her to sit on, and then they hatched last Friday, the day before Hurricane Irene. Daine is a first time mom, and very proud of her babies. Daine is a buff brahma bantam and mille fluer d’uccle cross. We are delighted to have her and her chicks around. The funny part is that Daine is the daughter of last year’s broody hen, Goldie the buff brahma bantam. Now she is the broody of the family.
Two of the chicks have EE's for moms, and the last one could be any banty hen in the coop-- buff brahma, d'uccle, buff brahma/d'uccle cross, etc.
Not sure who the dad is either-- could be the mille fleur
d'uccle roo, or the mille fleur d'uccle/ buff brahma banty
