Here's my broody with her back riding kid. I believe the chick is a Easter egger and probably a bantam cochin cross. Could also be part barnevelder. The yellow legs I think rules out an Orpington rooster.

Hope your luck is better than mine, but any time I see one on mommas back, it turns out to be a cockerel. :lol: :hide

Ok, I removed it. They are eating and drinking now. So silly. But, I guess it terrified them!

Strangely, my calls aren’t near as bad about moving things as my Swedish were. They were terrified if I moved the water 5 feet one way or another. The calls don’t seem to mind.

They don't seem to mind if I move stuff, but do not like tarps apparently. Even though I secured it to where I thought it was barely moving, it moved enough. Plus, it was overhead. So, that probably added to their terror.
I added a large stump and it took a few days for them to get used to it, but it wasn't interfering with their eating and drinking.
