I now have a Brown Leghorn and 3 Black Minorcas in my garage. All 4 were so old they were starting to feather out so the feed store was basically giving them away.
As a result of the neighbor's dog, I have a ginormous Black Australorp in the garage with her chest sewed together with fishing line. She threw a helatious tantrum when she saw the baby chickies, plopped her big ol fat butt in their brooder and refused to leave. Since her fat butt took up 98% of their brooder, I moved the babies into the "sick pen" with her. She gathers them under her (whether they like it or not
) and won't let me or anyone else anywhere near them. It's hilarious...they are pretty much completely feathered but she stuffs them under her each night and during the day the one stands on her back while the other 3 hang out beside her.
