    kabhyper~ Oh yeah, I wasn't thinking! Gus and Booker on duty. I wish I could help with your question about your broody young hen. I'll probably never have one. When I put a wooden egg in my RIR Nene's nest she threw it out and bonked me in the head with it. (Well, that's what she looked like she was thinking!)

    jchny~ I love your story of your broody hens quitting after a week! I can just see them saying, "Well, enough of this xxxx!"

    My son thinks I athromorphize my pets too much. He has no imagination.

    Rural King in Niles had Cornish x and isa browns, well they did have Tuesday anyway, 1 full bin of each.

    Pretty birds. This is what my broody hatched. Not sure as I didn't really see his layers.
    I know that feeling! Keep on that vet to send out the blood. I need to find a vet who will draw the blood to send out. So far those I've called won't.

    Hows the second little one? Is he still limping? Keep us updated!

    I'm really thinking it has something to do with feed. I'm gonna get a new bag today, or tomorrow, and check out that theory.

    To stinking cute!

    My broody just turned 8 months on the 14. She was broody for 2 weeks before I set eggs, so a total of 5 weeks. So that puts her at 6 months 3 weeks. She is a fantastic mama. She did really well with the eating and drinking, but only if I put her outside. She wasn't willing to leave the nest, not even once per day. On those 90+ days we had, I took her out 3-4 times and made sure she ate and drank. I say try it. She is willing and ready. Just keep a close eye on her.

    That's what I finally did. And she was a determine bird let me tell you. Wouldn't leave the nest willingly, I had to move her out daily.

    I was at the Bloomington Rural King yesterday and they still had quite a few Cornish and ISAs.
