    I noticed today that I have three hens that are broody. My wife told me she has seen eggs with the fertilized bulls-eye in the yoke. If I stop collecting the eggs the broody hens are sitting on so they can hatch will she keep laying more eggs?

    Shell start laying after she hatches the chicks and they grow up. or if you keep taking the eggs out from under her and throw her off shell stop be broody eventuallyyyy

    Your little ones are so cute, I remember when Miracle was that little. Chickens grow much to quickly. Thanks for posting the pics.[​IMG]
