    well poor Lacey Bear my broody Silver laced cochin has been sitting on some banty eggs - testing fertility for me - well after about a week I candle the eggs they show nothing - clear - but I did not have the heart to take them from her just yet - I was planning on moving her to a temp hoop coop and letting her have a few of the brooder babies to love - but DH said no ( he was afraid Lacey would hurt them ) well after sitting out there for about 3 weeks I think Lacey Bear finally realizes they will not hatch and she has given up LOL

    oh better luck next time

    well Lacey Bear is only just a year - so she has plenty of time to be a mommy - maybe someone else out there will go broody and - we will let them have a try at hatching - hopefully next time the eggs will be fertile.
