    Hey guys! So I decided to make a thread about the hatches going on at my place. My modern game hen hatched out one chick so far, looks like a serama chick from my breeding pen. I also have another serama hen on 7 eggs. 2 are modern games (really hoping these two hatch as the rooster passed away not too long ago) and 5 are seramas (1 is from my other serama hen, and the other 4 are from herself. I was actually really surprised she decided to go broody.lol She never seemed the motherly type as she had no interest in the other chicks hatching. So I will keep you guys updated! Pictures will be posted soon! [​IMG]

    Thank you! I had bought a pair of brown red MGB at a show in March. The rooster passed away about a month ago. So I guess I will be on the look out for a rooster if none of the MGB chicks hatch. But I am really hoping they will! This is the hen's first time going broody and she has been a really dedicated mama. And yes, I loved my little MGB roo. He was such a sweetheart! Haha, yep Serama were my first breed that I chose to starting getting serious about showing and breeding. So they will always have a close place to my heart!
