I recently joined BYC, and prior to that enjoyed reading posts as a guest. I had 2 broody Sussex chooks and got them some fertile eggs for Christmas!! These girls did the work for over 2 weeks, and had a bit of a roster happening with the other girls. For the last few days, one of my ISA browns turned all broody!! She is turning out to be a great mum!! I'm pretty new to all this, so I am quite excited by it all!! I have 15 all up (plus these 2). 2 light sussex, 2 coronation sussex, 4 ISA browns and 2 Welsummers. Then there are 5 that are around 16 weeks - australorp, blue Orpington?, 2 RIR (I think one may be a roo) and gold laced Wyandotte with a crossed beak. I'm pretty sure these babies are a gold and silver laced Wyandotte. The shells were marked, but hard to read when in pieces!! We are in the middle of a hot spell, so trying to keep them cool is a challenge.
