So I've got this buff Minorca who seems quite insistent on brooding - I've been chasing her off the nest repeatedly for over a week, with the result that she's sitting more determinedly than ever (her expression is hilarious - "I DARE you to take THIS clutch"). I'm just about ready to go ahead and let her do her thing, but before I do, the fifteen dollar question is, Do Minorcas make good setters? I can't really afford to waste that many eggs if she gives up halfway through. I kinda hope she can go through with it. I have six different breeds of hen and two breeds of rooster, so the progeny should be interesting.
