    I've had a broody bantam for a while now, I left one of her own eggs for her to hatch - she's a Mille Fleur D'Uccle and so is our only rooster.

    Well everyone else has laid in her nest as well, and I stop by regularly to pull out all the BIG girl eggs.

    [​IMG] Missed one! I went to check her this evening and she has an Ideal 236 egg PIPPING and ZIPPING.

    I wonder what the little chick is going to look like! [​IMG]

    Its 103 in the coop right now so baby will be just fine - mom will be surprised when she gets back!

    I'm guessing a mid-sized white leghorn with slightly feathered legs and possibly a poofy face [​IMG] LOL
