    She's been on the nest for 2 days. I have a couple of questions. I set Serama eggs in the bator on Wednesday. Should I give them to her or some of them? I'm thinking she'd do a better job than I will. Plus I know Serama's are hard to hatch. Thanks

    Just make sure she is absolutely broody before you put expensive serama eggs under her. Some broodies set for a few days and then just get up.

    I think I may move a couple under her tomorrow if she's still setting. Not sure If I should move her inside tonight or wait. Hmmmm

    Well I brought her inside today and she is still sitting happily on the eggs. I've added a few more so hopefully she will stay put.[​IMG]
