    i have 2 hens that like to double up on the sitting thing, i try to controll the amt of eggs, as all will lay by them, i thought it was to early yet but checked today and found 6 new chicks, on the top shelf, {not good} and one mad momma on the floor calling them while hen number 2 still sat, i took them down and she attacked me, {normal} so i set up food and water for them all inside, the other hen is still on a few eggs, i was lucky to get some pics , [​IMG]

    help! they scream if i dont let them be with me, its killing me, its 10 pm and they should be in bed. i have spoiled chicks, i love them but they need to go to bed,. they want to sleep on me, they make the pheasant chicks make noise, and i know the gamebirds need rest, i need to get them with the broody hen if i can, the mean one has 6 new chicks. but the other is still sitting on 6 eggs., i thought i could put these guys with her in a few days and fool her.

    Rainbow Bridge now. RIP
