    Well, I finally broke up all the cochin bantams, wasn't bad... I only had 7 out of 7 broody at once. [​IMG] The two Orloffs I got to quit sitting and start laying again... [​IMG] The Partridge Cochins I got off thier broody kick..

    And this morning the little bantam hen. my last hold out, hatched out 6 out of 7 eggs she had lain in the floor of the coop.

    If you are being serious about the chickens I would take them but only if you could ship.

    Everywhere we went, the broody fever struck. We even saw a pair of doves making a nest inside a street lamp (glass was partially broken.) Wonder what happened when the lights came on that night? [​IMG]

    Okay, I'm new at this and still waiting on my chicks. Just wondering what happens to the shell after the broody hatches the eggs? Do you remove it or do they eat the shell? I wouldn't want to promote cannibalism.

    I ordered all females of different breeds (yeah, like THAT's a guarantee!) except for 4 Silkies in a straight run (actually hoping I will get a Silkie Roo in the batch.) I'm considering hatching in the future.

    The chicks are so precious! Congratulations!
