I'm practicing birth control with my broodys. Limiting the number of eggs they have
there are 7 lil fuzzy butts with 3 mama's. About 2 weeks old. Another broody started her hatch today. I saw 1 black Sumatra chick. Yesterday a broody Sumatra on 2 eggs hatched 1. So there are at least 9 more in 2 weeks. And broody season has just started.
But the number will change as roo's go to freezer camp. I think with newborns, keeping mainly hens this year, the number will pretty much stay at 100.
Hard to count them all. You ever try to get chickens to stand still to count them?
Yeah, I have tried to count them. That is why one HAS to count their chickens before they hatch. Can't count them after........... they won't stay still.......
