    Once again, the cochhin bantm has been broody FOREVER and just won't quit, so I got her a dozen quail eggs to hatch. Oh boy! The countdown begins....18 days.

    I can't keep rewarding this broodiness with eggs to hatch, but its SOOO temptiing. I got a wire bottom cage thiis time, so when she's done, the broodies are going to be put in confinement if they can't stop this nonsense of bogarting the nests with no fertile eggs to hatch.
