    Soooo, basically last night I went to candle the eggs and only two were left!
    turns out that my dog (or dogs?) ate five of them!!! I was ssoooo ticked.

    Its suposed to be like the third day for her two eggs she has now. So I'm planning on adding more eggs because i really wanted more than two chicks and If those dont hatch I wont have any. So I'm going to try it. hopefully the eggs she has now aren't to far along so that she abandons the new ones if the older ones hatch first.

    That's good! When I left my broody in with the other hens they all ate the chicks! [​IMG] I managed to save three. Here is one of the lucky ones: IT was one of my D'uccles.
