    If I was lucky enough to win the lottery or something and paid for all of y'all to come see me, would y'all? Just curious. You never know. It could happen.

    I was just reading, the will go broody so no worries there . Maybe check her breast and see if she is thinning there. I would wait a day or so as to not interrupt her though.

    Six is a good number for a first time mom. I would give her six fresh eggs and get rid of the 17. And I would isolate her, so no one else lays in her nest. My broodies always puff up like tom turkeys and make a screeching dinosaur noise.

    I'll also have to buy some big buses converted over to chicken coops and get several horse trailers and hire some drivers so y'all could bring all of y'all animals lol.
