    It is a miracle!!
    My little 6 year old Serama hen is sitting on her first ever clutch of eggs. I have tried for years to get her to sit and she just will not do it. My brother and his 2 kids (3 and 5) are here for a few days and she decides to sit! So I spend all my time yelling at all 3 kids (Mine is 5) not to run around her nest or bother her in any way. I am so happy about Goldie, but am amazed she is still sitting after 2 days of 3 wild kids running around.


    And proud papa


    And Goldie with Loren


    Yeah! Natural Serama chicks!!! (Trying not to count my chickens before they hatch [​IMG] )

    I am not sure how many she has, but I think there are 6. Maybe 5.

    Thanks for the good thoughts. She only has 20 days to go!!!

    Well, she got off the nest for a few minutes and I got worried, but was able to count the eggs. She has 7 eggs! She then went back to sitting!! Good girl Goldie!!

    * That's too cool!!! I am glad to hear about an older hen still laying and even sitting on a clutch. I am already a little worried about justifying Miss Chook's room and board bill. . . . [​IMG] Go Goldie!!![​IMG]
