    Okay, so I have about a week or so before the eggs under my broody rooster are due to hatch. The weather's been extremely wet and cold lately, so I'm a bit concerned for when the chick hatches. Will he keep them warm 'til they dry off? Or should I bring them in?

    -refers everyone back to her post in Me, My Chickens, and My Family board- . He's the first picture up there. He doesn't growl when I try to pet him though. He crows. It's really funny, and as mean as it is, I'll intentionally walk into his little "bubble" to watch him fluff up, make a gremlin noise, then grow his little head off. I keep trying to make him sit in a nest, but he has himself a hole dug in the floor and his two little eggs are in the hole underneath him. -shakes head and sighs- I'd be happy to get more pictures tomorrow if y'all would like, though!



    (Silly me thought with eight replies SURELY someone has answered my question. [​IMG])
