This summer I finally got my Welsummer Chickens - along with a Buff Orpington, a Rhode Island Red and a Isa. I have some old girls that were tired of laying. Anyway, one of the Welly's was going broody and just having a horrible fit when we took her eggs - the last time we took them from her - she cried for almost 30 minutes over it. The next night we left her 4 eggs. That was 3 weeks ago - and tonight they are hatching! We didn't do anything special. She made her own nest on the floor - it looks like the Buff Orpington will be the next lady to hatch babies. . . she's gone broody too. How cool is this?
