sending good hatching vibes!
Loved all the pics! Hope your sick calf is better.
All your girls are lovely!
I have a Black Astralorp Hen, I think I spelled that right. Any way she has went broody for about a week now trying to hatch golf balls.. I Thought I might put a large box in my house and give her some eggs to sit on, Do you THink That this is a bad or good Idea.
My concerns are:
1. will she become a stranger to the flock and have trouble with re-entry
2. will she freak out if I Seclude her with a Clutch of eggs in a new place she is not used to,
3. She is only 6 months old and has not attempted this before can she do it.
4 I can not seperate her to a spot near the other chickens because of predators.
5 i assume in my house is best because of the indoor temp for the chicks not being frigid at night time. or do you think in the barn would be better so they are used to the cold???
any help would be awesome as I am new to chickens this year and have never hatched an egg in my life. I have plenty of fertile eggs how many should i place under her?
Thank you, Jeremy
WOW I really like their looks, roosters are quite impressive! And the hens look very sweet too!
OH MY! That would have had me in a panic too, I have had one get a long blade of grass wedged and was gasping. Slowly pulled it out of his throat and he was right back to foraging.
Glad she was ok.
Excellent video thanks!
