    Absolutely! That's what she'll do best! As long as she can cover them all they'll be just fine. Broodies even take chicks out when it's much colder than that - it's been reported that some chicks were in the snow, just running back under Mom to warm up!

    Me too . Luckily my neighbors have goats right next to my horse pasture. I get to see all those babies play, feed them my weeds. Keeps me from being bad and getting more goats...Always had goats when my kids were small. In fact I raised my daughter on goals milk. And a couple of orphan foals. Just a note if you have a orphan foal the colostrum from a goat works just fine on a foal.

    The air cells don't look too bad. I did think the chicks in the eggs looked big but I didn't candle until yesterday, day 16, afraid of what I would find so I guess they would be big.

    Question are they as pink as they look in the ads???? I know my CLBs eggs have lighten up so much. But they have laid a bunch of eggs.... The marans egg I bought on line were never as dark as the pictures.
    If the croads langshans were that pink purple I'd be temped.....

    Egg colors can't be properly seen in photos.
