    Congratulations! [​IMG]. I have a BO that has been spending extra time in the nest box for the last month, but the other day she went full blown broody. She is my sweetest girl, I felt sorry for her so I gave her 6 eggs to try and hatch [​IMG] even though I dont need anymore chickens!

    Mine were sitting on unfertilized eggs so I switched out some standards.... I already have 17 chicks in the brooder and I also do not need anymore chicks but who can resist?!
