OMG guys...so I finally let our insanely broody silky, Betty White, sit on eggs (first time letting a broody hatch). I figured that if she was gonna sit in the corner of the coop for days on end, she may as well make herself useful Here's my sweet girl Earlier this week, I walked into the coop to utter chaos, as Betty went RACING out of the coop with an eggshell in her mouth, then back into the coop to get on top of her eggs. As it turns out, an egg had broken inside the nest - how or why it happened, I'm unsure - and the little baby (formed, but eyes still sealed), was laying about a foot or so away from the nest. Anyway, everything has been fine so far with the rest of the eggs. I went down this morning to do my morning check and the EGGS ARE CHIRPING! Gah! I'm a WRECK! lol I have the brooder pen ready in the coop, should I need to move her and the babies if any of the others give her trouble. I'm most nervous about this, but I assume that she will protect them as best she can. Any special tips or tricks would be greatly appreciated... ....oh, and if anyone has a Xanax for this nervous gma, that would be great, too.
