    Thanks wishing. Never heard that expression before. I'm doing good. Got my broody move tonight. Moved the nest with her in it. Got a question. Tomorrow when I let them free range, do you think she go back to the dog kennel that I put her in? Or will I have to put her back in myself? I put the kennel right next to the coop. Would've liked to have put the kennel inside the coop but it's to big.

    I let both of mine have their chicks. I find it so much easier than incubating. Its funny because my Silkie broody mama decided about a week to week & a half ago that she was done being a mama for the most part. So the other 2 females that are 5 months old are now being surrogate moms to the 5-7&8 week old chicks [​IMG]

    before I took out some of the eggs because she had to many, I noticed when I went out to do it, she had already moved five eggs out of the cluck. Guess she was smarter then me and knew there was to many or somehow those weren't fertile.

    Red I would wait & only let her out by herself. Early broodys can lose their focus easy with other birds around. I would just focus on pottying her once a day, by herself IMO

    Well I'm sure they gave you exercises for your carpeltunnel? From what I hear, Jerkins lotion can cure those dish pan hands. [​IMG]

    She free ranged today about thirty minutes but stayed within 20 yards of the eggs while the others went to the front yard. I hope this isn't a bad sign?
