Here she is, she's a New Hampshire and she's my first broody. I moved her into a brooding pen in the garage. So the countdown begins, this is day1. She's a large breed so I gave her 12 eggs. I'm so excited!

Congrats - nothing nicer than seeing a mother hen wondering around with her chicks. I hatch chicks just for that reason.

that's why I'm so excited, it's heartwarming seeing little chicken families. I bought silkies, and OEG hens in hope they'd go broody but they never did, I've been waiting for a broody for about 3 years now.
