    Ugh, sorry about your vent... :hugs

    Calls can go broody, just like other breeds... and you get same range levels of good and bad... but a good broody Call is awesome, but frightening to watch at hatching... it's hard to see a difference between a good momma tearing off shell and a bad one attacking them as they hatch... if any of mine go broody, I will let them and hope for the best... note the good ones afterwards...

    [​IMG] I know. Thanks!

    Isn't it?! I'm pretty sure its a blue Swedish but I could be wrong [​IMG]Hmm, hadn't really thought about that [​IMG] I'll see what I can do. I'm not, I knew it was too late when I saw the yolk. Well I did do something, I put it out of its misery.

    :clap:



    :hugs could that really be the cause? Did u ever check temps on that date? An odd duck there ;)

    Oh I see! Interesting... I'd probably panic and grab the eggs, but that's where experience would make the difference.
    Kinda like watching a drake grab a hen, and thinking that he's hurting her, when she's really enjoying it! [​IMG]

    You did the right thing, hon... :hugs

    See if you can get Nutri Drench or Poly Vi Sol without Iron... give 3x's a day to that one and any other crested or weaker looking ones... and put a bit in the waterer for them all... helps with the stress from the big move to new place and all...
