The date on this is wrong. This was taken yesterday 5/19/11!
CUTE I love photos like that!
Thanks! This is my first hatch and I am so excited!
Your broody looks happy looking, mine ALWAYS gives me the stink eye..
I actually have 2 broodys in the same nesting box. The cochin has taken the rest of the eggs to sit on and this one is raising the chicks! Kinda reminds me of my own mother! She took in foster children but I was the one she adopted!
The broodys might fight once the chicks are hatched and the more dominate broody will get the chicks leaving the other with nothing from my experience. Maybe once the chicks are all hatched, split the chicks and seprate them,......
Thanks for the advice. I need to move them down closer to the floor. I am afaid of the nest box being so high. I did attatch a board across the bottom so that none of them could accidently fall out. Hope this is okay.
Are they with the other hens from the main flock? If so I would get them out of the coop, the main flock will bully the broodys and possible pick on the chicks
