So the subject pretty much says it all. I am new to chickens (about 3 months now), have my first broody and set eggs under her tonight! Would love to have a hatching buddy or two as well as some experienced hatcher's and people who use broody to keep me in line! Here is my girl. She is a 2 year old cochin and I put 18 eggs under her tonight. Im not sure if any or all will be fertile, so starting with a lot and will have a look see in 7 days.
