I wasn't going to do it. I wasn't. We have 26, I think, 6-7 week old chicks right now with 12 more day olds due to arrive next Friday. So why, why are those 2 broodys out in the house so hard to resist? Why? I let the one hen have 3 eggs today. I told myself...it is only 3 more chicks, what is the big deal?

First I gave in to the chantecler who has tried to hatch golf balls for weeks.... I finally left her some eggs. Then 1 of the giant cochins decided she needed to sit too. The cochin was smarter, she got into a place I couldn't reach her to make a nest. Now one of my other cochin gals has joined her... I have no clue how many eggs they have between them.

Its a rebellion I tell ya. Give an inch and they steal a mile....lol
