This batch of leghorns seems even sweeter than the last. I think it might have something to do with the cage. They're in a non-drafty spot, no cardboard walls around them, and they can see us clearly walk by all the time, and when I open the cage, they're never startled and soon as they see food or water in my hand, come running up to me. Very cute and sweet! I'm getting a totally different reaction from the supposedly docile breed in my other brooder with high walls where I have to reach down to them all the time. They obviously think I'm an Owl or hawk!

This is kind of a stale thread on the topic, last post being over 2 years ago. Here is a link to an active similar thread.
Little brown sat on those eggs until every single one was hatched!!
100% hatch rate, 6 total. not bad for store bought refrigerated eggs.

And so is my lab partner!
Is this a Welsummer bantam hen?
