    This mom, Goldie, sat on 12 eggs. She is 1/8, lol of our 1st flock o' birds ever. Anywho, she hatched 5 o' the 12 and i rescued 2 others that had pipped but sat left behind fer 2 days. One was killed by a predator a few days ago and i replaced it with one o' the 2 i rescued, and one was injured by one o' our dogs today and is in the brooder with her sib and 5 others 1 week older that i incubated. Mom still has 4 under her. We're jist gonna leave those 4 with mom and allow her to raise them on her own.

    Thanks for sharing that sweet pic. Beautiful hen and the babies are adorable. Can't wait till the day I get to "forget" to collect some eggs. [​IMG]
