Hens are good foster parents

Our Blue Andalusian hen being a surrogate mom. None of the babies are actually hers, but she did a great job raising them.  She has issues laying eggs herself.  All of her eggs that she laid would come out deformed or yolkless.  Nevertheless, the went broody over a bunch of malfunctioned eggs, so I gathered some fertile eggs and put them under her.
