My buff orp Sunny finally broke the brood after 7 weeks. She was thin & looking terrible, I thought she was going to kill herself...silly girl, we don't have any fertile eggs. Well now my big, beautiful EE Penny has gone broody & she seems like she might be a good Momma. What are your experiences w/ EE's hatching chicks? Once the babies hatch can the stay with the flock? It could start to get cold here at night in late september, will that be enough time for them to grow to survive a winter? Do you think I should buy a few fertile eggs & try to let her hatch them? Any other tips or advice would be great!
