My Cuckoo Maran broody only has the one chick, but the chick was out and about at a couple of days old, no one semed to pay any attention to it so I let mom out. There is a 6 inch door jam and the chick just hoops up and out with mom. It is neat to see the chick wandering around under all the others when they mob me for treats. I candled the guinea eggs under the 2 broody Black stars and looks like they are all developing. I also found a black Cochin being very grumpy when I went to pick up eggs in the afternoon. She was still there when I went to candle the guinea eggs so I'll give her a couple of my turkey eggs if she's still there tonight. Except for the CM these guys are all first timers, having just started laying late last summer.
