    In case anyone is wondering, this is the thread:
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/...ck-out-of-here-a-diary-of-a-crazy-chicken-man

    It's one of those monster threads that you may not look at because it is just so big, and you have to read it from the beginning. I started reading the first few pages, and it's like a book you can't put down. I won't read current posts, or post on that thread, because I seriously don't want to ruin the story

    My broody is on 8 eggs since Sunday afternoon. Pulled one today to check, faint veining visible. She had a loco moment or two where she was off the nest for about 3 hours running away from invisible demons, but has been pretty much sitting tight to the nest since then. Am doing a repeat of my gender selection experiment. Broody hens are boring! Water: check. Feed: check. Still alive: check. Done.

    Even one less step with a Brinsea. Water: check. Power on: check
    I have never candled a broody egg
    Did you say what breed it was?

    See this is exactly why I'm stopping myself from doing that rescue, I wanted to do. There is a great article on the BYC homepage about quarantine. At this point I would google it as a respiratory infection and treat everyone. Hope it clears up quick!


    I knew you'd want to jump on that! See, you can sensor yourself! ;)

    I started reading it too, awhile back. Then I switched over to here and haven't been back. His thread is what made me start weighing my eggs. I gotta get back over there to read. I want to find out what happens too!

    I hope she hatches some babies! :)

    If you read this entire thing, I will give you a teaser. The post I am most proud of was the "Across the Pond :smack" trilogy. A lot went into it, but Yorkshire deserved it :lau
