Let one of my Broodies out with her chicks this morning.
Was a bit wet but they were just pleased to be out.













She has 2 Blue Laced Wyndottes, 2 Buff Laced wyndottes, 1  Gold Laced wyndottes and 2 Indian Game.

I've had fertility problems with the cockerel, so he is with 5 unrelated hens, this will mess with the quality of the lacing but hopefully improve fertility.

From 33 eggs set I got the 5 chicks.
I will rear them all to next year and hope for a nice Blue Laced or Gold Laced cockerel, which hopefully will be more fertile.
