My first broody hatched the first eggs from my own flock today. (well, half of the eggs so far) I'm so excited, and I tell my family the news and I hear crickets chirping. They just don't get it, look at me like I'm crazy, even make fun of me for being "the chicken lady". While my husband is excited that they are hatching under a broody (and therefore do not need a heat lamp) he still doesn't get the excitement. I'm so glad I have all of you that understand.
