This white rock hen was one of my very first, purchased as a day-old chick 4 years ago. White Rocks are nice hens, docile and pleasant to have around.
She’s never hatched out chicks before, though. We generally take all eggs out from under broody hens. But she must have hidden herself away in a nest somewhere on the farm other than the coop. And now she can be seen out and about with her 5 little puffballs. So cute! She seems to be a much better mom than the ducks, who typically lose the majority of their babies somehow.
