@RavynFallen I wish. She was worst then the one I have. I had to dump her out of the carrier at the feed store to keep from getting bit.
Oh, ick... :/
Assuming that Frieda follows her usual pattern (lay 20-30 eggs then go broody enough to try to hatch her feet Any failures I can pretty much point back at myself...), then I'll be setting BCMs and Sulmtalers. While I do have a small incubator, I promised myself and my husband (darn accountability) that I'd only incubate when I have a broody--3-4 times a year instead of year-round. Besides, that way, all going well, Frieda can do all the work for the 10-12 weeks she likes to raise the chicks. 'Tis great watching her try to cover "chicks" bigger than herself
Yeah, I wasn't dealing with another crazy Dom hen. At least they don't have mites, lice, or scaly leg mites. Yuck.
.... Totally just ordered some Bielefelder eggs. Pretty excited!
Cuties that my broody hatched from thursday-saturday. 2 of these came from blue eggs but I don't know which 2 as they look similar to the 4 from brown eggs. My husband is getting excited about the prospect of maybe getting blue egg layers. I was saying to him yesterday how it was going to be expensive housing this lot and he started coming up with far more expensive plans for much larger numbers of chickens. So maybe if I get another broody in time, I'll set some blue eggs for easter.
