    This is a good year for broodys, my 4 hens are doing great with there chicks. I have 5 more hens wanting to brood.
    I may set a few more just going to have to see how they handle the heat. So far I have if I've counted right 91 chicks.

    My first set eggs ever are due to hatch tomorrow but one already came early this afternoon. They are being hatched by a buff orphington but they are a possible cross between bb red and silver duck wing, bb red and millie fluer (SP), or just bb red. In other words the hen is bb red with 3 roosters on the farm. Just thought I would share since I am up late and excited since this afternoon.
