    Hello! Just wanted to get my area on here. Hope everyone is as happy as I am with my chicken family!!!! Waiting for mama chicken to hatch 5 eggs! Maybe 1 more week. She had been missing for 2 weeks, when I found her she had been sitting on eggs. I hope they are good eggs! My chickens free range so I call them my mobile flower garden! lol!

    Welcome and greetings from Central CO. I hope your momma hen does a good job. I'm glad you can let yours free range. We did ours for a couple years until the fox population moved in. This spring we have a moma fox with four kits under the neighbors shed. No free ranging this year. What kind of chickies will she be hatching?

    The mama who is sitting is a black australorp, she has 5 or 6 eggs under her. Roosters are turken, RIR, or a mixed easter egger, and maybe feather footed. I am so excited to see what is hatched. I am from central California 4 miles from the beach, but love the mountain life! [​IMG]

    Please let us know when your chickies hatch. I have australorpes and several crosses from my austra hens. They are great birds.

    Yay! She did it! 8 out 11 eggs hatched! They took 3 days to hatch out! Other 3 eggs were dead from start. Thats ok, I wasn't planning to have babies this year at all. What a nice surprize!
    This is where she was in my yard.
