My girl Sunny tried last year in the middle of a heatwave to have her first hatch, she failed & we were all so sad. She went broody a couple of other times & this Spring when she started with the broodiness I wasted no time & ordered 6 welsummer eggs from aussiesharon. She hatched one out overnight! I'm pretty sure at least one more is peeping inside the egg. I now present my first chicken Grandbaby WOO-HOOO Thank to all that answered my questions along the way!!! And a big thank you to BYC in general!
