Last Thursday I got home from work around 7:30 pm and went out to check the broodys. I have two. So in the confusion and drama of arguing about nest boxes, one of the broody buffs had went and got in another nest. I found her two eggs I had candled that were viable, cold with two new eggs laid that day. I was so upset with her i took her out of the nest and set her on the floor. The eggs were very cold. I almost threw them away. Something told me to keep them so I put them under the other broody. The buff I put on the floor stole the eggs back! So I let her keep them. Monday when I got home from work I went to check the coop to make sure no new eggs had been laid in that nest while she was up getting food and water. To my surprise I found a chick!
I couldn't believe those eggs that had gotten so cold were still good. I put the Moma, chick and the other egg in the brooder. Today the other egg hatched!
I just wanted to share this.. I think the chicks are the cutest... but I know I'm just a proud .....would that make me a grandma?
