    This is the 2nd time this summer my GLW has gone broody [​IMG] . Well instead of fighting it, I took the last 6 eggs she and a SLW have laid and put them under her. I'm not sure our rooster is doing his job but in about 3 weeks we'll find out! [​IMG]

    Quote:10 quails! [​IMG] Our rooster wasn't really old enough at that time (well, he was, but we hadn't seen him doing his deed) so we had just purchased some quail eggs so we put some under her, and they hatched. [​IMG]
