    MUAHAHA! So, our silly hen hasn't been warming up her eggs, but she's still laying. It's been pretty cold so I found my silkie roo and put him on the eggs. He kept on fidgeting around not sitting on them then I put the eggs under him and he stayed. He started putting bedding onto him and started pecking you if you tried moving the eggs. MUAHAHA! I hope he's still sitting on those eggs!

    I caught my banty columbian wyandotte sitting on some eggs the other day. I thought how funny it would be if he actually sat them long enough to hatch. Of course as I was thinking that he got off the nest and wandered off. It's hard to imagine a rooster sitting long enough to hatch them, but if I've learned anything on this forum it's that nothing is impossible when it comes to chickens.

    Well, the momma came back and I was happy and sad. The mom is a Thai and there are two other Thai Roosters in there too, but there is this one rooster that breeds with everyone. So, I hope her babies are pure. The silkie got shunned lol He's all the way across the other side of the pen with no one.
