    So it seems my little seabright has decided to go broody! Problem is, the coop is due for a cleaning and she is in the corner, not in the box. I am thinking about making her a little pen all her own? and I know its here somewhere, but is it about 3 weeks for a hatch? She has been at it about 3 days. i am sure her eggs are fertile, though I havent wanted to get under her just yet to see whats there. Right now all we have is a Mille roo, should be an intreasting hatch!! lol

    Thank you!!

    So you have a broody Sebright! WOW! I have two Silver Sebright roos (just started crowing at 11 weeks), and another Silver chick and a Golden chick in the brooder about 6 weeks old. I am hoping these two aren't roos, too.

    And to read that yours went broody.. [​IMG] Woo hoo!
