Tomorrow! tomorrow! I love you tomorrow! lockdown a day away!!!!!
My eggies go into lockdown tomorrow too!
Broody #11 started sitting today. This is getting comical.
I am officially at an all time high broody epidemic. Luckily I have some production breeds so there are plenty of eggs to go around.
I have 3 of them currently residing in my feed room. Where am I going to put this one? I have under the poop board, on the poop board, in the nest box, under the coop, in the chicken tractor, etc, etc, etc, broodys.
Broody # 2 hatched 2 more chicks today. I haven't ever had one hatch chicks and continue to sit. She hatched her first chick on 4/30. She was up to 4 total earlier today. Broody #3 took her 6 out to meet the flock today. She seems to have it much more together than #2. Broody #4 should be hatching this week.
I also have 15 in the incubator that went into lockdown yesterday. Happy May
Yep mama hens can do it better than we can if they are good mama hens.
Holy chickens! Good luck! Send some Broodies this way
Cute! Tomorrow! Tomorrow! I hope I have chicks tomorrow!
Were still at 7 pips out of 18. I guess I better go to bed. Crossing my fingers! Good luck with lockdown!
I would be glad to!
The majority of them are marans too. Don't let anybody say Marans aren't broody monsters!
Well I had one turkey hatch but it must have broke one of the main blood vessels and it bled to death being that young I didn't know what to put on it to stop it and if this offends anyone I am truly sorry I didn't want it to die I just didn't know what to do so I moistened it and put it in the incubator as with my chickens it usually helps stop the blood it didn't bleed very much but when I checked on it wasn't breathing or moving. I think my broody hen is about to give up on setting on the turkeys eggs being that they take longer
Lost a few more. One looks like a day 6 or 7 quitter and one was probably lost today. Plus removed another dud. Down to 21 eggs from 30.
I have another that looks like a dud but it's shell is dark enough I'm not comfortable calling it yet.
Hopefully no more die.
