I had serious doubts about this hen going broody, but she did, and since we had no roo, and no eggs from her, I bought some fertilized eggs for her to sit on from Quail_Antwerp. She sat and just about bit my hand off at times, and they hatched early! I was expecting the worst with this being my first hatch, but had an over 67% hatch rate and lost only one chick so far!! The rest are just total messes, so cute, and funny and they grow SO FAST! I got a pic yesterday of a chickie hitching a ride on Mamma and a few others as they've grown over the last week and a half. Newborn June 12th: Week old: Hitchin' a ride from Momma! This is So cool!!!!! She also pecks flies and stuns them for the chicks, and anytime we go out there, we all get the "food comin' kids" call. We've found out they LOVE hot dog bits...that's way better than cable tv!! Just wanted to share, Iam SO hooked it's not even funny and now my honey's getting that way also!
