    8 for 10, but 1 was broken..not sure if it was eaten or just thin-shelled. I almost always get 7, but sometimes as many as 9!

    Quote:Color me jealous. I want a broody. Instead I have a girl "pretending". She puffs up, screeches, bites and even has plucked her belly clean. Then she lays her egg and pops off the nest like nothing happened.

    I don't need 6 broodies though. [​IMG]

    Make that 7 broodies [​IMG] I've got a broody bantam in my bantam tractor... guess I'll have to give her some eggs tomorrow. I would gladly share a broody, 7 is plenty.​
