    Four Barred EE's and one Blue Orpington. She has also moved back onto her actual nest--she had rolled all the eggs off the nest just before they started pipping.

    There is just nothing sweeter than a broody and her chicks!

    I told my DH that I love broodies so much that I want to let my laying flock over time go down in size just so I have room for more broodies to do their thing. Dusty is still broody and I'm considering letting her have these eggs that are in the bator.

    Oh, SpeckledHen, they are SO adorable! I just let two broodies hatch out some chicks as well. They were my first broodies and I just love the whole thing too. It's so darn precious. I LOVE that the mamas are raising the babies - and my husband loves that we don't have the brooder in the house again [​IMG]
