My 1st time broody ......
« on: May 08, 2010, 21:29 »
Has hatched three out of five of her eggs this morning...... hoping for the other two to hatch tonight :)

I am so pleased with her.... she has sat like an old pro and to see the two little black and one gold hen was wonderful.....   Even though I have hatched about 100 myself so far this year :) :) :)

Ist time for both of us... the natural way :)
I love Pekins, Polands and Seramas :) and eggs!!!

good luck with the other two - it can happen over a couple of days so I would just leave them alone and she will bring them out when she is sure they have all hatched or no more will. Then get taking those photos that we all want to see  :D
Staffies are softer than you think.
