Multigenerational nesting

The now grown-up baby of one of our best mother hens has gone broody and is devotedly sitting on a nest. The other day I went in and both chickens were sharing the nesting box–original mama is the orange one and she’s sitting next to her own former baby who is now trying to become a mother herself. What a nice, intergenerational effort from this chicken grandma-doula šŸ™‚
