I set 17 Golden Cuckoo Marans this morning, (3/31), along with 3 isabelle leghorns and 3 Silverudds Blue in one incubator. I already have 24 assorted SB, SFH and isabelle leghorns in another incubator due to hatch in 7 days whenever that is.
Also a cuckoo marans has been sitting for 3 or 4 days on at least 12 eggs. I put SB, isabelle leghorn and blue copper marans under her, but no telling what else she has commandeered.
Today, an australorp decided she is broody. She has a BYM under her and as soon as I can catch her off the nest she will have some SFH's under there too. IDK how many eggs she has.
The broody disease has begun!
All said, I have a minimum of 60 eggs set at this moment, but knowing my broody hens it is a lot more than that!
SFH, Isabelle leghorns and lovely Silverudd Blue (formerly called Blue Isbar)
-Silver Ameraucana, Queen Silvia and East Frisian Gull. Eggs fall 2016.
