    So I have the chick bug, and apparently so do my hens! My first hatch just happened 2 weeks ago (2 hens shared a nest and hatched out all 4 eggs they were sitting on). Now I have another hen gone broody and this time I filled her up! lol I have 7 bantam eggs under her - I bought some Sebright eggs (3 silver, 2 golden) and added to them 2 eggs from our own bantams. So since they were set today, I'm guessing March 4th? My husband will be going out of town for 5 weeks on the 5th, so I'm hoping they'll hatch before he goes away! And I wonder what kind of luck we'll have...I've heard it's pretty rare that all 4 eggs we put under the first hens hatched out. I really don't NEED 7 more chickens...but I'm getting pretty good at chicken math already. lol
