    OK.
    I WENT OUTSIDE TO THE COOP THIS MORNING.
    WELL I WENT OUT THERE TO CHECK ON EVERYONE AND THE BROODY HEN WITH 6 EGGS.
    WELL WHEN I WAS CHECKING HER I LIFTED HER UP AND I HEARD CHICKS. IT WAS DARK AND I WASNT SURE IF THERE WAS ANY PIPS OR NOT BUT WHAT DOES THIS MEAN WHEN I CAN HEAR THEM.
    I KNOW THERE WHERENT ANY OUT OF THE EGG(THAT MUCH I COULD SEE).
    BUT DOES IT MEAN THE CHICKS SHOULD START HATCHING SOON.

    IF SO, SEND SOME GOOD HATCHING VIBES FOR ME AND THE BROODY AND PRAY THE CHICKS GET OUT.

    THANKS [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

  5. DID she get all mad and stuff. I love it when I go to pick up a broody hens butt and she squeals out, it is cute.

    Let mama do her thing. Keep an eye out for babies crawling out of the nest box. GOOD LUCK and have fun.
