    I only have limited experience with a broody but I hung out in the broody hen forum for awhile ;). What happened in my hens case and what usually happens (per what I've read in the forum) is the broody hen gets up once a day to eat, do her business, etc. they can be pretty quick about it so if you miss it don't worry. Just make sure food and water are near. I can't wait to see pics of these babies they are going to be adorable!!

    Quote:I hope we get some babies. I did notcie with a few of the eggs, when I candled and moved them around, the large dark spot that took up most of the egg, moved with the motion of turning it. As I have never had any experience with this, I don't really know what to look for other than the pics of development I have seen online. None of the eggs she is sitting on are hers, if they do hatch I hope she accepts them. She has silkie, wyandotte, an ee egg and an autralorp egg under her. 12 total. I think I may have to candle again in the dark next time.

    are they in warren? I have the phone nimber for a butcher in warren.

    i am not selling eggs and i assumed peiple woulf figure out that shipping was not included because that woul make the eggs $5 or less. It was kust list an asking price from someone i bought from.

    i know there are breeders here in indiana i just like the quality if his birds better. It has more of what u am looking for when i buy AMs. I have a list of people I want to buy AMs from he is on the top of the list.

    i watched a youtube video and it made me feel so bad for the chicken. I know it is just nerves but it still looks as if they are alive

    I was able to get another pic of Margo the (apparently) Easter Egger not Amaraucana?

    And since I was out there taking pics, this is Harriet - the BR (she is pretty fantastic with her big floppy comb). ALso, she is down to one tail feather right now :)

    It is good to know what she is! She is small and sassy and is one of the favs! Lily is moulting bad and has been ever since we got her. She has a naked chest! Between her and Harriet's lone tail feather they are quite a sight!
