    Also setting eggs under two hens - one a blue silkie and one a barred rock - both bantams. Setting Ameracuna and Marin eggs - one group under each - so excited - will keep in touch..

    Ok cool! My broody is a barred rock too!
    I have NO idea what breeds I got in the eggs since I got them from a friends farm but I think one is a White leghorn from the looks of the egg.

    I set 3, a standard bronze turkey, mixed duck, and a standard polish. All in incubator. We have one incubator specifically set up for staggered hatches since we dont have that many predictable layers.

    I missed you on the 30th. Is it OK to join?

    We have 11 eggs under a broody hen (her first brood) set on 3/30. She started with 12, but bumped one out. Seven are EE mixes, the other 4 are barnyard surprises.

    We had to move her from her selected nest site, four feet off the floor. She was not a happy broody, but she has recovered and is safely confined in our broody pen inside the coop.

    No lockdown for us this time just a watchful eye on our broody.

    Good luck everyone.

    I realized that three of the four eggs laid in our last broody's nest, while she was was off taking care of her personal business, we marked 3/30. So we have lockdown on the incubator for those eggs.

    Our current broody is in the zone, not leaving the nest, but if we spend too much time even looking at her she screeches at us, "LEAVE ME ALONE". lol

    I'm trying not to be too antsy, but I'm ready for new chicks, the others are 3 weeks old and growing so fast. Let the pipping begin!!
