    Here are my Broodies! They are on Day 10. They are sitting on D'uccle, EEx, Pheonix and polish eggs. (im hoping to have little fuzzy butt pics in another 2 weeks!!!)

    First up is Dora, one of my Silkies. She moved nicely into the crate on day 2 or 3. I think she is trying to block the world out, she always has her Backside to the door of the crate!!!

    Next is one of my D'uccles. She refused to move into a cage and has had her nest taken over (more than once!) by her sister in the next picture!!! She is quite content to just climb into another nest and sit on a freshly laid egg!!! Not sure if these eggs will hatch, I am going to candle tomorrow and see if i can see anything.

    She had just climbed on her sisters nest and I caught her!!!
