    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] TWO! of my white silkies have finally gone broody! It was official yesterday so I gave each of them five eggs to hatch! [​IMG] But they're in the same nest box anyway [​IMG] I"m so happy!!! [​IMG] They hardly ever leave their nests! I felt one hens crop and it was full of food so I know she's getting off for a brief moment. And when I set her down anywhere other than the ground she just sits there like she'll sit anywhere at anytime [​IMG] So amazing! [​IMG] They growl a little at me but not a whole lot. Did I mention they went broody at the EXACT same time? Hehe they're broody buds now [​IMG] I should have my first hatch by April 21st!
