    I just hatched out 7 of her eggs. She has been sitting for 11 days. This is all new to me so i have no idea what to expect from her. She has 7 or 8 eggs under her. I don't dare disturb her or know if i should. She made her nest on the floor right next to the door in the corner. Any thing i need to know. I have food and water close by. She shares the coop with 1 rooster( Rockey) so there is body else to bother her. [​IMG].

    Oh my but she is a BEAUTIFULL hen!! If there is no one in there to bother her...then just let her be. She knows what she needs to do. Happy mothering! [​IMG]
