Broody Bantam

I just could'nt help myself , i have a little crossbred bantam who just loves to be a mother !! Today i just gave in and set her on 6 hen eggs , is it too early ? will she manage 6? well time will tell , but i just could not resist the chance , i will keep you updated .

Keep an eye on her once she's settled down and check that she's got them all covered. Obviously, if one of them isn't quite covered, then one by one they'll all get chilled.  Good luck, what eggs have you put under her?

Well it looks like she is covering them , the eggs are from ex deep litter rescue hens x a Scots grey cock .i never worry as if they hatch they will either lay or eat ,  i know that perhaps my methods are a bit haphazard , but i try to live the simple life.

100% I Agree , i only wish i never needed to move into the 21st century , i could live quite happily bartering goods , swapping things , working until i was tired ,going to bed when i had done a days work , talking to folk i liked , but its no like that ,,, i understand that time moves on and we have to move with it ,

Sod that Confused !   I'm thinking of seeing if I can get some Silkie crosses and going back to using broodies instead of the incubators.
