    Mind if I say something? I have several OEGB hens, and one is broody and on day 14 right now. She has never been broody before so I can't say what kind of mom she is. She is 15.95 oz and is covering 10 bantam eggs- not sure how many LF she could cover if she was motivated, but I have seen 3-5 under her.

    Good luck with your hatch!! -- Thanks for the info -- I was thinking maybe 3-4 -- I'm planning on this chick being a She -- and going broody -- nothing quite like peering far into the future huh?

    Gator75 -

    can we do general chicken chatter -- and await your posting the pictures of your flock when they arrive? Not meaning to be rude here -- but you already got the answer to your original post, sooooooo is it o.k.?

    The friend giving them to me "paid extra" for guaranteed females....So, I'm sure all of mine will be roosters.

    are those bantam eggs in your avatar? OOps I see that they are probably standard size -- it would have to be Banty chooks to be banty-eggs? [​IMG]
