    Thanks, Im very nervous but I have faith she will do a great job,she went broody on me 4 weeks ago and had no eggs cause I took them all,then my other hen started laying and I took her eggs and gave them to trixie and shes been sitting and sitting,I candled 2 weeks ago and all way fertile.Hope we get more solid whites like mom,I guess we will call Trixie a stepmom,lol.

    Maybe Trixie would be called a surrogate broody- after all she is hatching for another hen. She ought to get paid.

    She gets paid with mealworms and grubs,lol. She done something this morning that made me mad at first but Her being a mother she must new something was wrong because after the third chick hatched this morning,she pushed it aside and took her other two chicks and moved to the other side of the coop away from eggs and third baby.My eldery mom went to check on chick around noon because im at work and the chick was dead.But I guess she new something was wrong with chick but it broke my heart.Took rest of eggs and put in incurbator.WE shall see if we get anymore,but Trixie said **** women two kids are enough,lol.
