How much longer do you have before your hatch? I just love hatching my own! It's so exciting! Keep us updated! Post pics please! I really love having a broody hatch some. In all the years we've had chickens, we've only had that happen twice. One of them was a little banty hen. She was in our hoop house, and I can't remember how, but something got in and got her and a couple of the chicks. The next morning, the rest of the chicks were in the yard, a cat had gotten one of them, It was a horror story! The other hen hatched them in the hen house. It is so much fun to watch a mama hen with her chicks! If I get a broody this year, I may try to buy some eggs to put under her. Have you ever heard of putting chicks under a broody? I will have to research that. If I could get a broody between now and when my chicks get here, I could let her raise them. But that probably won't happen. When I want a broody, I get none. When I don't want a broody, I may get 2!
