    I started to get chicks to put under her yesterday but they didnt have breeds i wanted. so i decided to chunk her eggs today and bust her up. low and behold she has 3 (that i saw) little brand spanking new chicks under her! its been a weird day.

    Oh, well that's not bad at all! Hey, I've never had a Black bantam NN cockeral before, they've always been pullets. In this last batch I have a black cockeral, its possible they are pullets. [​IMG]
