    Good news my two broody hens are mothers now. My buff cochin has at least 8/10 hatched so far 2 black/ blue astrolorps and 6 new hampshires and my little bantam RiR just hatch 4 of 8. One of the hatched eggs was cracked and i used candle wax to seal it. She has 1 black sumatra chick 2 dark copper marans and i got a throwback french wheaten maran from a dark egg. 20180516_135548.jpg 20180516_134924.jpg

    Tell me how that goes, so then having two hens with new babies hanging together in the same general area and there’s no antagonizing each other?

    I've never been able to have 2 broodies in the same area let alone a bantam and a standard. Nice! And awesome job to your ladies! Hope they both get extra treats.
