    Little Timmy went broody about 3 weeks ago. She has 6 eggs that should hatch this weekend. She went broody right as my eggs in the incubator were hatching. So I put her in the little tractor and add the 3 week old chicks and she has taken over being their mamma as she sits on her eggs. Its so cute. I started rising chickens a year ago and love every minute of it. Timmy going broody has been so much fun.

    So far no, but I just put them out there yesterday. They are along the side of her and the eggs are under her. She has pooped on them. We have seen her off those eggs twice in almost 3 weeks.
