Howdy

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
We bought 4 chicks last year and have really enjoyed raising and watching them. One went broody, which brought me here, because we gave her eggs to hatch. It went well, till it didn't and she was attacking her new hatchling. We bought the hatchling some buddies and they are doing great. The hen abandoned her other eggs, so I brought them in under the brooder light and one pipped this morning. i posted a question that I'm waiting for admin approval on. Hoping for some guidance from the hive mind smile.png

Welcome to BYC - sorry you have had trouble right off the bat!  Some hens are just not cut out to be mothers.  Hopefully you will get some help in your other posting.

Home of the world's cutest dachshund, one crazy blue heeler, two cats,
              one fat pony, and many (but not too many!) chickens

              Can anyone tell me, how many are too many chickens?

Some of the best broody breeds are Silkies, cochins, buff orps.  It doesn't mean they all are good broodies,  hatchery birds may have it bred out of them.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
