    Buhk Buhk and her chick and keets had a lot of fun outside today!

    Help With Broody

    So I checked the other five eggs today. Two were dead/rotten, one was infertile, one was fully formed and would've lived had I opened the egg just two/three days ago :hit, but the fifth one is still alive! I had candled it and it looked like just a bunch of liquid, so I thought it was just...

    More updates... Buhk Buhk doesn't like it when the keets freak out and run all over the place but she lets them sleep on her. It's so cute when I locked the little coop up for the night both of the guineas were passed out on top of her. I give my birds a banana every evening and I watched Buhk...

    Picture updates! The lighting is pretty bad in the little coop so it's very difficult to get good photos, but here are a few anyway! We got two guineas for her today and one is sleeping under her already! You can kind of see it's head in the following picture.

    Hey, just a question. I was able to wing sex both the dad and the mom, will the baby also be wing sexable? (Sorry if this is a dumb question, lol.)

    We have a baby!!! I know the dad is Toots, and I think the mom is Lucky who looked exactly like the baby but lighter when she was a chick.

    I hoped she was when we got her (and her sister)! They ended up being D'Anvers, but still happy for them nontheless! (Especially since none of the other hens care to be broody.) https://www.backyardchickens.com/threads/what-breed-are-these-sweet-bantams.1494222/#post-24931165

    It's chirping! (Still in egg, though.)

    So I moved her on day 18 to the little coop and she accepted the move! This time the little coop was next to the big coop and there was no hay in there. (I figured out that she doesn't like hay.) The fact that she's been on her eggs so long might have helped, too. It's now day 24 and there seems...

    So I moved her to the little coop and she really didn't like it in there, but while she was in there I fixed the nesting boxes in the big coop. I still need to add one finishing touch, but it's good enough for Buhk Buhk. Before: After: Even my chicken Boo, who never lays eggs in the coop...

    She's broody again! That chicken is determined to hatch eggs. She's in another cardboard box now and I will move her to the little coop today before the chickens roost. I wonder what type of chicken she is...

    Help With Broody

    I'm so mad! So yesterday the other chickens had pushed out all of Buhk Buhk's eggs except for 1 in the morning before I let them out. I gave her those that weren't cracked + new eggs and put her in a cut cardboard box so I could try a different method of moving her out of the big coop. I was...

    She didn't accept the move. :I I moved her last night and I could tell she was very confused. The first time I checked she wasn't on her eggs, so I put her on there and checked again later and she was on the eggs. In the morning she badly wanted out so I let her out a little bit, then right...

    Thank you! Most of the time she prefers to lay eggs and roost in the coop I want to move her to anyway, so it might just work. The chicks can't fall to the ground in there when they hatch, either. I will take pictures tomorrow if I am successful moving her and again when they hatch. They should...

    One of my sister's chickens, Buhk Buhk, has gone broody in a bad nesting box. Two of my chickens have faked going broody (only paid half attention to the eggs, which did not develop), but I think Buhk Buhk is serious. She has been in the nesting box for two days and I haven't seen her come out...
