    Tomorrow's the day! Gwen has been on her babies for almost three weeks now... She's grouchy as ever! [​IMG]
    Cross your fingers, everyone! Hopefully, Gwen will be a first time momma this time tomorrow! [​IMG]

    Carri, I hope the rain we are supposed to get holds off till Gwen hatches all the babies. Are you going to have her brood them or take them inside? I really enjoy new fuzzy butts! [​IMG]

    Best of luck and keep us posted - if you can tear yourself away from Gwen long enough, that is!!!

    Gwen is actually a surrogate (read: crazy broody). She has three eggs and I'm hoping they hatch because she wasn't very good the first couple days!
    Homecatmom- Gwen is actually in the house. She's taken over the office. I'm on the laptop now, but when I'm on the desktop, I feel beady little Silkie eyes burning in the back of my head! [​IMG]

    My daughter says she needs a Gwen. I told her that I didn't know if you had the means to produce other little Gwens, but that I would ask. I already have bought eggs from Jen today for some black/blue/cuckoo silkies, but Sarah thinks we need buff ones too. She needs a chicken to cuddle now since Little Buddy discovered he was a chicken.
