Because I have FOUR broody hens!!!!!
You must be drowning in chickens!
I am. There are 10 eggs under a br hen, 12 eggs under my EE and God only knows how many under the two BO's tag teaming the cat carrier.....
Lucky you! I was forced by DH to put the bator away and nobody is broody!
Time for coop building if this rain ever stops!
At least we dont have to water the garden!
No that just means you now have more room to fill up.
Quote:Exactly! I have 3 broodies right now, 2 seramas (one with week-old chicks now) and a rhode island red (go figure) who is sitting on God knows how many RIR, BSL, and EE eggs covered by a barred EE roo! I hope she keeps sitting, curious about the barred/RIR cross. My bator is still being kept full.
Have bator ... will hatch chicks
If mine were selling better than I might consider it, but no one is buyin!!!!!

Three silkies are sharing a nest of jersey giant eggs (takes three silkies to hatch one jersey giant lol) one of my big jersey girls is trying to set but I keep taking the eggs and one of my orp girls is sitting on eggs (dont know how many) I just hatched 12 yesterday and today and I have 2 more pipped I also have 30 waiting to go the bator when its empty lol
I had my bator going with 27 bantam eggs..well the next day I had 3 hens go broody.Thursday the bator incubated 13 of the 27 eggs, and Friday,the first hen hatched out 6 little partridge cochins and the other hen did not do a good job, she kept letting the other hens get in her nest and laywith her and of all things..this morning I checked to see if she had hatched anything...AND ONE OF MY RABBITS HAD GOTTEN IN THE NEST ALSO AND HAD BABIES..UGHHHH..
