    7 out of 8 hatched! My broody momma did a spectacular job and continues to do so 5 1/2 weeks later. I hatched Jersey Giants and my broody was a Gold Laced Wyandotte. They're already half her size, but she still mothers them and tries to sit on them! lol! I enjoyed letting her hatch them, and am thrilled with how well it went. Thanks for all the good advice! Oh, and they seem to be getting along and accepted pretty good by the rest of the flock. I haven't put them in the coop for the night with them all yet, but the do free range and come into the run with the others during the day. (They're still in the brooder at night, but that wil change next week when the new coop is done! Fingers crossed! [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Thank you! I'm sorta proud of my momma hen, she did so good. It was her first time too. That's why I had to share! [​IMG]
