I gotta tell you that the white rocks are the easiest brooders I've ever seen. One got the urge and bing, the others were piling on. Getting them separated were much more of a problem. I've decided to stay in the Portland/Vancouver are and live with my daughter Jenny. She wants me to garden and relax. Not going back to Louisiana. I'll let somebody else pack up for me.
I was actually surprised when my WR turned broody the first time because I'd been told repeatedly that the tendency had pretty much be been bred out of them, but my Lily turned out to be an amazing mother. I just wish she would ease off that instinct a little bit. She only lays for a max of 6 weeks before turning broody, and she absolutely refuses to be broken. That's part of the reason I'm just working with her at this point. As long as I have the room I'll just let her hatch out a few eggs each time to keep her happy.
