    Hey right on! Can't wait to see pics, it is soooooooo exciting isn't it. My first attempt should be hatching in about 10 days (I have ducks so the wait is awful). Hopefull I will have your good fortune.

    Cute! Please don't tell me you missed the magical moment, when the first chick hatches and comes out from under the momma hen and just stares at her and the hen starres at the chick. I call it, "FACE TO FACE" It's soooooo cute [​IMG]

    Hey Adeters2,

    Are all your broodies Black Australorps?
    I'm just curious because I've had 5 girls go broody in the last month -- and they were all BAs.

    I was told by a friend of mine who raises chickens, that they are black sexlinks. But they live and play with my others.. pearl white leghorns, and rhode island reds, cochins etc...
