There was great excitement at the farm on the morning of August 20 when a little bantam chick appeared from under one of the broody bantam hens. A few hours later, another little one appeared. The hens, Bertha and Bonnie, have been brooding for about a month now. They made their nests beside each other and have been observing stealing eggs from each other's nests. It appears that the little chicks are being shared too, as they move back and forth between mothers. It will be interesting to see how many more chicks hatch, and how Bertha and Bonnie share parental duties!
