    I have had a 100% hatch before with a broody hen! Gave her 12 eggs, and she hatched out 12 healthy chicks! [​IMG]It was a Buff Orpington hen, they have always been my best broodies so far! [​IMG]

    Very cute! I wonder what a stuffed moose would act like LOL.
    I had a lone chick (named Chicky) that I let hang out with our dogs allot and she would eat with them so she partially imprinted on our older dog. She would actually almost "bark" like a dog, it was in-between a dog bark and a chicken squak. We trained our dogs to chase the chickens off the porch (without hurting them) and when Chicky started going outside she did whatever the dogs did. So sometimes she would be lying on the porch in the sun (she thought she got a free pass) and dad would yell "CHICKEN ON THE PORCH!!!" The dogs would run outside, past Chicky and she would jump up and follow them as they started chasing the chickens that were further away. The dogs considered her family so never learned to chase her off the porch, but she loved helping them chase the other chickens away. [​IMG] She was terrified of the other chickens though unless she was chasing them. [​IMG]

    Here's Chicky as an adult. She was my favorite chicken ever, if I walked by without noticing her she would sqwak and run after me, she also laid an egg on my lap once [​IMG]
