    My D'Anver went broody weeks ago AGAIN, second time this summer. First time she sat like a stubborn chicken on that nest hoarding all other eggs because none to sit one. I have no rooster so no eggs to incubate. Felt bad for her even though I do live in a city and not too much space. WELL with second time I decided to give her very own egg and not take it away. Just for kicks went to this Amish store I know, picked out literally ONE, count ONE egg. Lady didn't even know if the rooster was among the chickens that were laying those, and showed it under the chicken. :lau On fast forward I am cleaning coop today, I check out the egg, which I have been smelling every day to see if it went bad. Guess what, IT HAS A CRACK FROM INSIDE OUT! AND IT IS CHIRPING! :lau So guess what....against these odds mama chicken is getting her baby chicken finally. I am excited. I have no idea of breed, all I know my whole flock is banties but this one will be full grown so we will see... :yiipchick
