    Hi Andy, and welcome to the best community for chicken lovers. I hope you find all the information you need. I've not been a member for long but have kept chickens for almost five years and I'm still learning! One of my hens hatched five eggs three weeks ago, lost one but the others are doing great. My first time with a broody and it's been a great experience. Not entirely sure if I have any girls, hoping maybe two of the four, wishful thinking☺️ Good luck, and if you have any questions, there's a lot of experienced members to ask.
