    While my hen won't be hatching around Easter, she has decided to go broody even though it is the middle of winter. She raised a clutch last year for the first time, and this is her second. I've got a number of new hens so I hope to get some fun colors out of the hatching.
    Her name is Susie and she is the sister of Goldie, daughter of Libby (or Sonny, they were sisters as well), and grand-daughter of Pip, one of my original bantams.

    I hope to set some eggs in the incubator to hatch the day before Easter. [​IMG]

    Here she is with her last clutch of chicks, which are now grown. One of her daughters has two babies right now, in the very pen where she was raised.

    Here are a couple of her daughters, Ruby and Tad

    Another one, Dodie

    And here she is with her brother (or perhaps uncle) and grandmother. I have five generations in my barn right now!)

    Ooo. I hope mine start laying by then. I just got them a few days ago. No idea how old they are, but I absolutely love them! It was so worth waiting so long. I hope one goes broody for the HAL!
