14 partridge chanty chicks!!

They are the cutest pinballing bumblebees!  Momma has her work cut out!  They were an accident/experiment in laziness.  I was curious if she would sit again as she brooded  2-3 chanty chicks a while back when they were 4 weeks old.  Apparently her and the other hen  thought 18 eggs was a good number

Re: 14 partridge chanty chicks!!

I think so PG.  She is busy now, so in am entrusting my EOs to the lavender Ameraucanas and another chanty.  Nathan put the eggs under tonight as we set up two little broody tractors todat, one for Jims eggs and one for Blondies so no mix ups!!  Still not sure about the toe punch thing :sick:

OMG they are the cutest, make me want to hatch more :banginghead:  Actually one of my BLRW is sitting on a bunch of eggs and my silkies haven't stopped going broody, they are just little broody machines.
Thanks for sharing the pictures!

Re: 14 partridge chanty chicks!!

You should see them now they are out on the grass in a bigger tractor!  Cutest little adventureres.  That coop has been commandeered yesteday for yet another broody Chanty on 8 eggs of Blondies and 2 lavender Ameraucanas are sitting on Jims line of eggs about a dozen each.  Nathan set them up in dark last night and say all the hens are sitting and have taken to the eggs and the 2 ameraucanas are bundled together on all the eggs!  Dare I hope?! :jumping:

I put a sumatra hen in with each EO breeding group.  They have both gone uber broody with this heat, 1 was missing for 10 days sitting on her own eggs, the other, I caught yesterday, so its for their own good and they do love the roo ;)
