    Well, 101, 102, 103, 104 and 105 hatched last night. The last 5 eggs under my broody self blue silky hatched. That means she FINALLY has no more eggs under her. So I left the chicks with her to see how she reacts. I have had to take the rest from her and the other hens because they kept sitting on new eggs so they were not taking care of the chicks but I figure since now she has 5 chicks and NO eggs she might take care of them. I'm hoping anyhow I'm getting a bit tired of taking care of all of them myself!!!

    I swear they have been broody for 6 months. I didnt realize that some of the broodies where still laying so its been a LONG go LOL a chick a day for about 30 days LOL!!! Anyhow now that she hatched the last 5 at once (not sure how) maybe she will take over. I got pens of babies EVERYWHERE I even has to mark them 0-7 in here with heat at 95 8- 14 90 etc, its getting nuts.
