    I am in shock that my first Broody was a BR. Just thought that I would share my shock and amazement. Enjoy her 5 babies!!!

    4 of them hatched 5 days ago. The last egg hatched last night. I think someone snuck an egg in the nest a little later. So I hatched the last egg myself and then put it in with the others and she excepted it. I was affraid she wouldn't hatch the last egg, not knowing how much longer it needed to grow. That's why I stuck it in the bator. I can't wait for more. I will be putting some of my ducks eggs in the bator pretty soon. It will be my first time. Wish me luck.

    You got lucky, BR's aren't known for being broody. [​IMG]
