    Puff, a one year old Golden sexlink, has been sitting on a clutch of 14 eggs for 17 days! im so excited! they are all developing nicely and should be hatching any day!!
    the eggs that are under her could be a mix of

    GSL/EE OR GSL/ Silkie
    EE/EE or Silkie/EE
    Silkie/EE or Silkie/Silkie

    i cant believe its time for her to start hatching!! GAH im so excited!

    Oh wow! I think it's pretty rare for a sex link to go broody....Congrats! Hope the hatch turns out great, and share pics if you can!

    Having just sweated and bit my fingernails through my first broody's hatch, I know what you're going through! Day 17 is two-thirds of the way through... and so many eggs, too! (Mine only hatched one, so far... there might be another viable egg of the 3 she was incubating.)

    I'm subscribing so I can see the chick pics, too. Way to go!
