    I have a black sexlink that went broody,so she was on two golf balls for three weeks,I kept her broody because I wanted to put four orpington chicks under her,They came in Thursday and I went out at 10pm that night and left everything dark and took out the golf balls and slipped the babies under her and left.The next morning early I went out to see how things were going and she was the proud mama and she is a great mother.The fourth one is under her[​IMG]

    Wonderful. Great job! [​IMG] Surprising what can hatch from a golf ball given enough love and determination. [​IMG]
