    I was supposed to have chicks from my broody on the 22nd, but she had 3 a little early and is still sitting on the rest.

    These are heavy breed, dual purpose birds and its anybody's guess as to what combo of bird they will be. Right now, it looks like a NHR, Black Star and a Dominique.....a little muddy on the bloodlines, though, as the roos were Blue Orp, Partridge Rock, and RIR. Should have at least one EE chick, as mom was allowed to lay one of her own in this clutch.
