    My good hen Elizabeth got broody, I thought this would last 21 days and she would get over it, so I left her to it ( wrong )
    After about 6 weeks she was still nesting on an emty nest so I got a batch of fertilised eggs.
    She cracked 1 and eat one! Another one broke the other day!! With a massive stench of rotten egg so I thought that was it and they were all dud!
    To my absolute shock and supprise I went into shed today and there was Elizabeth with her baby chick !!
    Made my day !!! :)
