    Well, I've been wanting an incubator, and sadly have not been able to get one. But that's ok, I got a pressure canner instead! [​IMG]

    However, I have silkies... so there is always a broody in waiting. I'm moving her to our quarantine pen since its empty and she'll be left alone. Giving her a mix of Silkie eggs and Japanese Bantams eggs. I'm sure she can handle 6-7. [​IMG]

    So... just to watch her and wait 21 days. This is probably going to be her 5th or 6th hatch.

    Anyone else with broodies setting???
