    ,my name is andrea

    i have 2 buff orpintongs called betty and wilma !
    i got them on the 22nd of june and they were laying there eggs by the 24th june !!
    i think they must be happy :)

    betty has gone broody on me after many attempts to stop her i gave up and let her do what is natural and gave her 3 fertile eggs .
    now i have to work out what to do if they hatch :/ i have no idea and am learning as i go so im up for taking any advice thatis given !

    if all goes well the eggs should be hatching around the 16th august 2011 ! :)

    Sadly it did not work out :( mummy chick wilma tried to fight of Betty who got a little toojelous and they poor eggs were cracked open just days before hatching:(
    poor wilma cried outfor her babies for ages , i could not resist making her feel happy so i popped to a local farm and got three for her.
    wilma has took them under her wing lovingly and are growing up together !
    they babies are bellow aint they cute !!!!!

    there slowly growning up and now they have names !
    this one is called Zelda
    this is called Nugget
    and this is dotty - yes looks like a velororaptor more than a chicken !
