    And she accepted the chicks? Maybe I'll do that, since I've never incubated before, lol

    yes but it was annoying changing the chicks out all the time

    Yep, you will want to pull them as they hatch, and then give them all back when all have hatched.

    Though, when the last one hatched, I would let her brood only the last ones to help her switch from "broody" to "mothering" and once she is feeding and watering the youngest chicks, add in the older ones.

    Always stand and watch for ten minutes or so to make sure she is happy with them.

    I have read of nasty broodies that will actually kill chicks.

    Thanks so much! that will be so much easier than having to try to incubate them at the last moment!

    well you can send some to me and I will let you know if it is really that good (I love chicken pot pie!!!!)

    Good Idea...I hope you suceeded better than I. I scrambled to get stuff done this morning before the rain but although I bought a cup of joe, I only drank about half of it because I put it down somewhere and lost it. then when I realized it (I usually have about 3 cups by noon) I rushed to get the caffine in so I wouldn't get a headache and then promptly crashed. Odd seeing that I'd just had caffiene...does it not affect me anymore? weird. very satisfying nap, though...

    well...off to clean the house and start preparing food. having dinner guests tonight!

    She's got 3 game eggs under her. Can't wait to see how they do!

    Well, the rain came before I finished my coffee. Sigh. I got soaked, but at least everyone got fed. :)

    Right now I'm sitting in the pen with my chicks, taking pics and trying to let them get used to me. Today they found out about scratch! :lol:
