    Hello

    My broody hen is sitting on eggs for the first time... but not chicks, ducklings (black east Indian).

    I have never hatched using natural methods (if you can call a chicken hatching a duck natural!) [​IMG]

    I have candled the 3 eggs, so far so good, despite being stollen by a rogue hen and one being chipped and repaired by wax!

    She is now in a seperate brooder.

    I plan to take some candling pics tonight.

    Wow! Wonderful!

    I have yet to try this, but I am starting to check in on hatching discussions. Very encouraging to see you reaching out. May your hatch and your flock be blessed.
