    My broody hen has done it again! She's going to be two years old in April and so far she's gone broody four times, successfully three however, and is a little egg stealer, too! Lol. Now, she has all her own eggs. 9 of them this time and so far, three have hatched. They're so precious! I can't wait for my batteries to charge for my camera so I can get pictures up. My hen is a Silkie/Onagadori girl named Davy (gender misinformation when she was hatched, haha) and she always has such beautiful babies. Two of them look like they could be Sumatra mixes, from my Sumatra roo and the other looks just like her when she was a baby, so perhaps maybe the child of my Silkie/Onagadori roo. ^__^ I'm so excited to be a grandmother again, and I'm only 17! [​IMG] I guess with the times and all.
