    I'm very happy to announce that one of my red sex links has gone broody and has been happily sitting on 5 eggs since Friday. I've read that those girls rarely go broody so I was not expecting it. Also, my frizzle is leaning towards brooding. Her chicks are about 7 weeks old now so she must be getting the itch again. She's been sitting in the nest about half of the day and growling/screeching at anyone that comes near.
    I see many chicks in my future! :)
    Happy dance!

    Yay! Good for you! It is really rare for them to go broody! You must have a special one!
