    Ahhhh....I'm praying for you. I've had only one hatching from under a broody mom, but I got 4 precious babies from that and I'm still trying to figure out what 2 of them are....smile. I ran around grabbing fertile eggs to add to her clutch when I realized she was broody, hatched out one purebred leghorn rooster and hen, one barred cross mix, 2 little easter eggers and 2 mutts. She was a very big white hen and she was unable in the past to stay broody.

    Anyway, enough about me, I praying for patience and safety for the little eggs and you!!!! Please don't disturb mom off the nest. And don't pull her babies out too early remember they can go days without eating and water so she's keeping the warm under her and is drying off their feathers.

    Let us know how it goes!!! Photos please!
