    My Broody is sitting on her first set ever. She will hopefully have 2 peeps in the next 2 days. She is an Austrolorp sitting on Cochin eggs. Very good Mama so far. Wouldnt come out during this last week,so Ive been her room service. She yells at me if I even Peek around the corner at her, but she hasnt tried to bite me when I take the babes out candle. This is her, before I built her a Broody Hide away this week.

    Got a broody Blue Ameraucana who just barely quit, and a broody Black Copper Marans who's laying on some infertile duds. Had a broody Araucana who just quit out on her eggs right at lockdown a few days ago. . Rather upset about that, but eh, it happened and is over.

    I'm honestly ALWAYS having a broody or two or three around here, but usually don't have them hatch anything until I have stuff available to hatch, and right now most of my available eggs to set are waiting to hit the incubator. (don't want my "normal" girls to hatch out and raise Shamos, haha!)
