    I just talkes to grandma and she said our bantam had gone broody.Well we originally had a broody who wanted to hatch chicks so we let her and now she has 8 eggs.I belive the chicks are due in the week coming ahead,but I have absuloutly no idea.They may not even hatch.If they dont then ill just let anither hen try.But if they do I would like to give atleast 2 chicks to my broody bantam,but by the time her chicks are ready thsese chicks will be old enough to deal alone.So maybe shell adopt early.
