ok - so my husband went out to feed the free range birds this morning and our sumatra was back. She comes and goes and tears around the property like a mad bird - so she just kind of does what she wants and just creates laughter for us when she comes around as she never goes less than 60 mph or 0 mph - nothing in between. Well this morning she had a little tiny fluff ball with her ... WHAT!!! had no idea she was broody or even had a nest going. So hubby comes in to tell me, and when I go out she is no where to be found. Hehe - I just happened to catch her out of the corner of my eye and found her little chick. It is ADORABLE and the smallest thing I have ever seen! It is so stinking cute. Well when I caught it - i tried to vent sex it and I THINK that it is a little pullet. Not sure who the daddy is as I am in the processes of culling all the roosters so I have a few running around. But when i grabbed the chick, i also found the nest. there are 8 more eggs in the nest. I also found the egg shell - it seemed like it was a little wet still inside. So how long do I wait to see if she is going to hatch out more chicks or if the eggs are no good? Thank you - this is my first time for chicks!
