This picture tells the story.
That young hen didn't get off the nest once in the 48 hours she was inside the house. So nothing to clean up in our spare room. But the minute I put her and the three chicks in this bigger crate, well, all I can say is "Whew!!!"
The next few days are supposed to be nice here in Minnesota, so tomorrow afternoon they will return to the barn and I will hang a light over the chick waterer to keep it from freezing. The hen will keep the chicks plenty warm. I can't say enough about what a good broody hen she has turned out to be.
Hopefully I can get a photo of all three chicks before they go back outside. They are like peas in a pod!
