    Oh wise and generous Sourland, please help me out.

    My silkie Jethro is currently setting on 6 very special eggs. This is Jethro's third trip to Broodyville. The other half of the dozen eggs are in the bator, but I'm one of those weird people that doesn't do well with 'batoring. [​IMG]

    Meanwhile my only other silkie, Ellie Mae, has not shown one iota of broodiness, despite being the same age as Jethro; 14 months old.

    Miss Ellie has been on the nest since early this morning. I just found a golfball that someone had kicked out of a nestbox and attempted to give it to Ellie. At first she growled and tried to bite me, but then she accepted the "egg" and tucked it under her.

    Please PLEASE send me some broody mojo. If Ellie has finally gone to Broodyville she will get the eggs out of the bator.

    I will remain forever in your debt. [​IMG]

    PLEASE NOTE: I am only asking for broody mojo, NOT any of Ranchy's wooster mojo.

    Impy just charges ahead, ignoring the response.

    So many animals to choose from...
    which to lay?,
    which to go broody?,
    which to raise the youngins?,
    which to have more?,

    Choices are:
    Cats
    Dogs
    rabbits
    snakes
    even people
    hmmm, but cows are stiking my fancy right now [​IMG]

    Now what to cross breed

    I actually saw one of the cows (that wasn't supposed to be pregnant) give birth out behind the big coop day before yesterday. It was pretty awesome. I even took a square of hay, usually reserved for lining nestboxes, out to the proud mama to help her restore her energy.

    Yeah I know. I fight to keep the cows away from my coops and then I go and feed one. [​IMG]
