:/OK.....little girl (barred rock) went broodie about 3 weeks ago. this is her first time and ours. We tried to keep her down to 3-4 eggs but fat girl and granny kept donating and by the time we got her to a dog kennel she was up to 10! She has been very dilegent and will barely get up and go 6 inches to get a drink or eat. If the magic number is 21 days we should have some tomorrow or so. then maybe a couple days after she should be done with what ever hatches. Someone gave us a chick condo. It is old but I am gonna clean it up and get it in shape tomorrow oif the weather will clear up. A couple of questions: 1. should I let he keep the chicks? 2. When I clean up the brooder should I worrk about bleaching it or just water? 3. The temps have been up in the 90s this week. will they be alright outside or should I keep them inside? 4. Food? 5. If any of them make it to hatch and I am going to get them out of there should I do it as soon as they hatch? 6. We are a little worried here and alot ignorant on what to do. OH BTW she started setting 3 days after we found a slightly used incubator and received it in the mail!!!!!! Timing is everything! LOL Thanks!
