    My broody, Emily sat for 27 days on eggs and 32 altogether. It appeared that all eggs were messed up by the post office. There was only liquid in them.

    So, I went to the feed store and got two barred rocks for her. She deserved to have babies~

    Here they are.

    That was such a bummer, Ellie! I sent eggs to Jess and Suz in another part of California that same week and they had a good hatch, so I know it wasnt fertility. Just wish they'd hatched for you, but at least Emily has some babies!

    I have a broody BO. I also have eggs due to hatch in 2 days...Hummm...I was wondering if I could isolate her and sneak the chicks under her. I was also thinking about putting the eggs under her..But don`t think I should for fear of something going wrong. Anyone have any thoughs on this?[​IMG]

    Awwwwwwwwwww.... My BO also went broody a few weeks ago - I bought eggs as well, she started with 10 eggs, but a couple broke and some where clear....
    she was lucky enough to get two little babies, a speckled sussex now named Molly, and a little Japanese bantam un-named.... (although my daughter has come up with PLENTY of names so far)

    Thanks, everyone. Cynthia, it was the fault of the post office I am certain. My other eggs from you had a terrific hatch and those babies are growing like crazy.

    It is indeed fun to watch a mama and her babes. They are all a little different, I can see from having two now.

    Wiledsky, need pics!
