    Went to Rural King to get meat birds (which were all gone!). Ended up with more than I bargained for! [​IMG]
    Brought home 15 BR, 9 EE, and 1 Brown Leghorn (just wanted to see how it would turn out.) [​IMG]
    I Gave 8 to the hen that has been Broody for over a month and she took them right away! The rest I kept in the brooder in the garege for about 3 days then I sectioned off a corner, with a 1X12 in board, in the broody pen. Sorry about the bad pic.

    Mama threw a fit!!! [​IMG] She kept hopping back and forth trying to get the other chicks to follow her our with the brood I gave her. I finally gave in and took the baord out. [​IMG] Mama now has a brood of 25 chicks! She is getting the help of a heat light though because some of the chicks are a little scared of her and I know she can't sit on that many chicks. She is a very good mama!

    In the garage, I now also have:

    11 White Rocks and 3 banties.

    LOL

    At least I finally got my meat birds.

    I had originally planned on The WR I had ordered and meat birds. But somehow, instead of 11 pullets and 20 meat birds, I have ended up with 36 future egg layers! [​IMG]
