    Stubborn broody serama, how many chicks?

    My broody serama won't give it up, we don't even have a rooster, and now shes sitting on a superball since I took the eggs from her. The feedstore sells chicks, but only the LF are sexed, shes not a tiny tiny serama, do you think she could handle 2 or 3 LF day olds?

    One of these things is not like the other (some ducky pics)

    My friend gave me this swan it sits in the yard and the ducks have claimed under the butterfly bush as their spot. If its quiet they are usually sleeping there. Not the only ones who like it. Its funny how the drakes like to crowd in one spot together while the girls spread out.
