You have an EE that went broody and is raising her own??? Wow didn't know EE's went broody let alone raised the chicks, that's awesome. Wish I had one or 2 or 3 lol that would do that. I have the worst luck at hatching egg and EE's are the worst. I had 2 dz in the bator this last time and MOST of them were EEggs, I got 2 EE's, which really made me say Fudge sticks!! a few times ( yes that's really what I said lol ) and most all the BYM's hatched giving me a total live count of 6. I am not impressed with myself at all.
Would it be too much to ask of you to post a pic of your black? I would just love to see her.
Our "Princess Lay-a" went broody last summer & was a fantastic mama. She's an EE mix.
Because of Princess, my DD got the idea for a broody 4H project. DD ended up winning Best in Show for her animal science. Although we used another hen for the project, Princess remains a cherished member of the flock.
Wow, maybe one of the 2 chicks I hatch will become a mom?????? I remember you posting about her 4 H. I thought she done an Awesome job.
Thanks for posting the pic too cute.
