Cathy aka Percheronchick brought 18 eggs over for my broody today!!!!
I was putting them under my broody and she (the broody, not Cathy!) kept scooping them under her with her wings and sitting down, then would look at me as if to say, 'give me more'. So I did.
I kept putting one or two down and she scooped them under her until all 18 were under her!
I am not sure if she should have that many, but she wanted them!
I came inside and Googled, " how many eggs can a broody hen hatch' and most articles said no more than 12. Should I take a few away from her?
She is covering all of them, easily...she is a naked neck.
Not much snow here, just wet and gloomy.
Happy Friday, margarita's are on me!
