Last Thursday we brought our broody Black Jersey Giant hen, "Emu" into the garage with her six wooden eggs that she had been setting on. Around 8:30 pm we swapped out 4 eggs for 4 chicks. K stayed out there in the dark to makes sure they were accepting each other. We were a bit nervous, but they were all well in the morning! 3 days later, we brought 3 more chicks home from the feed store. Late in the afternoon we added these 3 to her brood and took the last two eggs. She has accepted all 7 beautifully!
