My little Cayuga, Pepper, went broody on cinco de mayo (May 5th) and has been dutifully sitting on her eggs. Her mate, Toby, convinces her to get up off her nest and go swimming for a short period of time, but one day she forgot to come back home. Yikes! I was certain she had given up and all the babies had died since she is so young, but the next day she was back on her nest. I felt bad because I thought the eggs were dead, so when she got up I went to go take them from her. I had a weird feeling though, so I decided to candle them just in case. They still had veins and beating hearts! I was so excited. As of today, we only have two more weeks before her hatchday comes around, and I was hoping to keep everyone updated and obviously post pictures. Come on Pepper, we're counting on you!
