I think it's catchy

I might have another broody EO. She was in the nest box for a long time today and I found an egg under her. Can't they wait till spring?!

Wow two that's crazy.  Sounds like you will have your own incubators next year.  The "Twisted Sisters" (my two frizzle cochin hens) have decided to go broody as well, I may let them hatch out a couple =D

NP, I just discovered my Ridley Bronze turkey hen has been sitting on her eggs -under a tree! That's about 24 more days and we may have snow by then :turkey:
Love it- twisted sisters- that's perfect FRF!

Re: I think it's catchy

Oh forgot to add- they seem to have odd timing. My one girl hatched out babies in December last year, which was actually kind of nice because I had the breeding groups separated and got a head start on hatching. ( I keep a small coop in the garage for such "emergencies" :chairhide:

Re: I think it's catchy

I don't understand the timing either, why would they go broody in the fall?  I also have had them go broody in Jan. and hatched chicks in Feb.  I had to take them away and bring them in the house for fear of them freezing. :nervous:

Thanks Susan I thought their names suited =D

Re: I think it's catchy

My silkies are broody all year long except sometimes in the spring when I want them to be they aren't!  They help keep the eggs from freezing on cold winter days!

Re: I think it's catchy

I candled tonight. Day 10, all were growing, but one got stepped on. I cracked the shell when I brought it inside to see if it was fertile and when I cracked it open the baby was still moving. :(
At least we have 7 more going.
