Everyone says Polish won't sit well looky here!!
gorgeous, how many eggs she got?
She had one egg hatch this morning and has 8 to go! I had another hen sitting too but decided to quit last week so I had to put that hen's eggs under this hen! Some of the eggs are due this week some are next!
oh well nice lookin hen and chick. good luck with the other 8.
awww so adorable!
Such a pretty hen! And the chick is a cutie too!
My Polish hen just hatched her first egg this morning. She seemed kinda grouchy with it this morning! Well it is moving around more thie evening and she acts irritated with it! She rattles at it and fluffs up when it walks around or tries to get under her! Then I noticed her pecking at it's body and feet! I am new to chickens and hatching so I don't know what to do! I feel I should take it away but I also feel I should give her a chance! What should I do??
Oh I don't know if this matters but this egg was from another hen who quit sitting last week. This hen moved over to her box and started sitting on these eggs instead of her own, which I placed in her box and she tucked them under her! The 1st hen's eggs are due this week...Moe's are do next week! Do you think she knows that he eggs aren't due to next week and understand why she is having babies now??
Do you have an incubator to put those other eggs that are due next week and let them finish? She won't continue to sit on the nest once the chicks hatch from the first batch.
