    3 weeks ago a non broody type hen went broody, so I stuck eggs under her... She sat well until a few days ago.

    The 3 eggs that were still viable after she gave up I put in the incubator. Unfortunately I didn't find them until quite cold, so it was always a desperate thing. Now only one has hatched... And it's blind, poor little thing. [​IMG]

    Just one of those days, had to share.
