Day Two!! Yahoo!! lol Designer Chicks is what their called now, sweet. My broody finally got up yesterday and got a bite and drink. She had been sitting on some of my own eggs, prior to the new ones I gave her, so she's actually been brooding for a week now. I threw the other eggs out after looking real careful at them. I cracked one and there was nothing in it. Hopefully she makes it all the way through till the end.
