We have a broody hen & I am quite excited. She has been sitting ever so faithfully & is about on day 19 or so. I am hoping by the 1st of next week to maybe see some baby chicks. I am not sure how many eggs she is sitting on (my husband moved her to this temporary home while she broods & I don't even know if he counted the eggs. ) Anyways we are crossing our fingers something develops, this is the 1st broody hen we have ever had. We will let you know you know how it turns out.
