    I'm sorry to hear about your ankle! [​IMG] I just "set" some eggs under a broody today. Mix "mutt" eggs I bought from a local chicken keeper to give the broody something to hatch. I hate wasting a broody. And I need more chickens (don't we all?)

    Sounds like it's going well so far! Hope the others hatch for you today. I gave my broody 5 eggs, 1 went off, the other 4 hatched yesterday and last night.
