Ezmeralda (Ezzy for short) just hatched out her second broody batch, or at least 8 or 9 have hatched so far. She has 6 more eggs she's still sitting on. Can't remember how many eggs my son actually gave her for sure. One of the little ones got injured and died, but I think there are still 8 little fuzz balls in there. Kinda hard to see as she's not willing to have them parade about for me to see just yet, but we lifted her bum and tried to count. Last year she hatched out 6 (3 boys and 3 girls), so we already have more this year. She was driving all the other hens out of the house and wouldn't let them lay eggs anymore, so I moved her to a small coop that I had converted for the young ones. We had to do a coop shuffle as we had gotten another coop anyway. Ezzy was a wonderful mom last year, so the idea of her having more was exciting. We had just gotten a new batch of chicks and I thought of putting some in with her, but decided to give her some eggs out of the fridge to see what happened. She is an awesome incubator! I really have to find my camera! It's driving me crazy not knowing where it got packed up this winter when we sold our home. At the rate that our new home is getting built I won't be able to find my camera until Ezzy is on a new batch next year. I'm just so excited! One of them has feathering on it's legs which means that it's bio mommy is one of Ezzy's babies from last year. They are EE's and lay beautiful eggs. Harriet lays a deep blue and Charlotte lays a dark green. I picked their eggs out of the fridge hoping we would get some of their babies. They are also very pretty girls. The coop we used for her was a 3 hen coop that I had removed all but the floor (shelf) of the nest box. We put Ezzy under the shelf so she had a dark area. Good thing to as Ezzy's sister Drucilla went broody and started chasing the other hens out of the house. Slap a few boards down on the shelf, add a nest box, insert hen and eggs. Yippy we got ourselves another hen incubator. Drucilla has only been sitting for about a week or so. I hope all the comotion below her doesn't upset her.
