    This is my 1st broody! My broody was sitting on 12 eggs and so far 8 chicks have hatched. Today is only day 20. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Crazy day! Chicks hatching 8 so far, My Easter Egger laid her first egg today and a hawk attacked my rooster (he seems to be fine) when I walked out side the hawk and my rooster were both laying on the ground. The Hawk is half the size of my BO

    Lance is a trooper. He is my alpha and after his fight with the hawk was still doing his duties. He is an awesome rooster. I hope I have him a long time. I told him I need more babies from him. lol

    Quote:What a great boy. I mean, I know hawks have to eat too, but just not all of our little chickens right? My BO roosters were extremely protective and good to the hens. Lovely boy Lance is.
