Ok I give up!

Post by Skinny rooster » Thu Mar 08, 2018 12:53 pm

I give up fighting with the broody hen, I let her keep Tuesday's eggs, I put little happy faces on the eggs in case someone sneaks a new egg in. I could already see an embryo forming in a white egg last night. It will be almost April when they hatch so hopefully warmer weather will be here by then. Spring is coming!

Peep peep peep! That's what I heard this morning, I saw one little black and yellow face peaking out at me. Will try to get pictures tomorrow.
