    I've been waiting for my blue silky to go broody, and I guess she finally has. Last few days she has been sitting in a corner a lot and this morning I went to feed them. She got up to see what I brought her, and I expected to see at least 1 egg in her nest. Well there were no eggs. There, all packed in a nice little bundle were a couple of chunks of watermelon rind and 2 chunks of corn cobs!!!!!. I wanted to laugh so hard, but I just got to thinking how determined she was to hatch something. I had been taking all her eggs and now I can give her a few of the ones I want her to hatch for me. They truly are good incubators, and will sit on anything.

    Get that girl an egg! My girl, Blue Mama sat on anything and everything for a couple of months. I finally gave her an egg and yesterday she presented us with this little love bug.

    Oh Warden what a precious photo, chick looks a little like Mr.T - no offense intended. Just it seems to have a baby mohawk.
