I currently have 6 partridge chantecler hens and a roo. I had 7 hens but a roaming bird dog killed one. But my smallest hen out of the flock has shown signs of being broody for a while now, so this morning I set her up with a brood box and eight of their eggs. She could`nt wait for me to even leave the coop before she hopped on those eggs. My kids, 2 & 5 are already asking when will the babies be here, It is going to be a long 21 days. Anyone have any luck on their first try? I figured I would let the hen do the work, Mother knows best right.
