    Since I have a broody sitting on 7 eggs, I went ahead and set 18 in my bator.

    10 of those are RIR eggs, I really want to see babies from Scarlett and Big Red.

    Good luck RR! Is your broody a RIR? It's tough to find good RIR broodies anymore. If so, I think its great.

    I want to see some Scarlett and Red babies, too, Lee. I have 8 RIR chicks that are related to Scarlett in the nursery. You tell Hazel (is it Hazel on them now?) that her former mom said to be a good girl and hatch those babies for you!

    Quote:Hazel is doing a great job, when its time to let her out I just open the dog crate and she walks right out, and she eats much better than Iris was, and I don't want Iris to lose her weight again, so I'm going to break her broodiness.
