    Lukka is not sitting well. Since she went broody, she has changed nest boxes several times, leaving her eggs to get cold. Yesterday I decided to get her some chicks and cut to the chase. Molly was kind enough to meet me in town today with 5 Swedish Flower Hen chicks that hatched yesterday. They are hanging out in the garage until dusk when I will give them to Lukka and see how it goes. I sure hope she takes them because I do not want to raise them. I'll update when I know if the transplant was successful.

    Update on Lukka. She took the five babies immediately and began cooing to them and tucking them under her. I left her in the upper nest box and closed off the opening with chicken wire for the night. That will give her a chance to bond with the chicks and they won't fall out. Tomorrow I will take down the chicken wire and move them to a nest box in the floor.

    I am so hoping this takes and she doesn't have to sit. So far so good. [​IMG]

    Deb is definitely closer. I am in the foothills above Sacramento. Hopefully Deb will check in.

    Thanks,
