Hubs and I were talking about getting an incubator at the first of the year and then well...things just got away from us. it wasn't really a "we MUST do this" sort of thing just a "maybe we will do this" sort of deal. LOL And then.........
We had a hen go broody.
We gave her 8 eggs, candled them at day 10 and then moved her into a partitioned area in the coop where she could still "be" with the flock but have peace.
I checked her this morning and didn't notice anything different. I came home from work and all 8 had hatched. They are sex linked so as of tonight we have 4 boys and 4 girls!! ALL 8 HATCHED!!! They are so cute!! LOL
