    Most of you probably saw my post about my hen who went broody and hatched out 10 chicks, they are all doing very well and have already got all there wing feathers.

    The good thing is that it looks like 8/10 of them are girls [​IMG]

    Also i got 2 new hens last weekend, Ethel & Louise:

    Ethel: easter egger X polish

    And my ex-batt Glenda, im so pleased with how she's doing when i first got her she had hardly any feathers and could hardly walk.

    Oh and the secret.....
    My other hen has gone broody, but my dad said 'NO MORE CHICKS/CHICKENS' so i just left her, she is in the middle of loads of prickles and there is no way to her, i only found her today and her eggs should hatch in about 4-5days. There is 11 eggs :-X but i will just have to keep it quite that there may be another 11 chicks running about [​IMG] its to late to take away any eggs now but maybe they wont all hatch.

    Here is grumpy Roxy (Ronnies sister, both there babys will be a month apart) [​IMG]

    Glenda looks so good, walking proud with her feathers.
    Wow!
    And Ethel.
    what a wonderful looking bird, looks like she is wearing a small hat,
    very stylish, with a white stole.
    her muffs? are fabulous.
