Oh my goodness y'all we are SOOOO excited!!! Fluffenbutter, my 9-month-old bantam cochin, went broody a few weeks ago. We put 5 fertile eggs under her and she hatched her first one this afternoon!!!!! I am about to cry I'm so proud of her. She is the best little mommy so far. Now, I have a couple of questions for all of you out there that have been through this before. I don't want to mess anything up... 1) How long before we can expect another baby? 2) What do I need to do for Fluffenbutter. I have given her some feed (hand fed it to her so she didn't have to get off her nest). And my hubby gave her some water. Then, we let her get back to the business at hand when she was ready. Also, JUST as exciting, we have 12 cayuga duck eggs in the incubator. One of them is rocking!!!!! They are on lockdown as of today!!! The ducks and chicks BOTH weren't supposed to hatch until closer to Friday so we are just in shock, but SOOOOO happy. Here's a question about them... How long after rocking are they born? Thanks in advance for any help y'all can offer!!!!!
