    I have my favorite hen going broody right now and would like to leave her set some more eggs, however I need to build some more housing for the additions to the flock.

    It just kills me to take the eggs from her the last few days. She is a proven great mom, and with fertile eggs how can I be taking these future pure Light Brahmas from her?

    I think as long as I'm caring for one coop of healthy chickens, It could be two... right?

    Don't catch the fevor....The peeps will love you for it.[​IMG]
