    I gave her 4 brown eggs, 2 bantam eggs, i think 2 EE eggs, and 2 white eggs. I won't say what breed the eggs came from because we ALWAYS get mutts and we have several breeds that lay brown eggs. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Okay so this morning I went out to feed them and she came out too I was bummed. When I came home from church she was on her origonal nest as i had tried to move her but she said no! Any way she is on her nest doing her thing I have marcked the eggs because she chose to sit in a popular nest spot. Hopefully she will sit on them all 3 weeks.

    Lucky you! I have one Serama that I let go broody, then the some of rest tried and I had to break them up, but the silkie, chochin, and D'uccle that we have to hopefully hatch Serama eggs have not yet... [​IMG] Maybe If I go tell them about your hen it will encourage them! Hope she stays there for you! [​IMG]
