Two more have hatched, a Golden Laced Giant Cochin and a Black Silkie. More eggs are wobbling and rocking as the chicks inside rotate into hatching position.
My broody blue Silkie hen, Blue, I brought in
to mother the chicks...she flipped out, hates being in the house and
EXTRA HATES being right next to Nadine.
So I brought in Boots,
who although she isn't broody, IS a Cochin and Cochins will happily try
to hatch rocks. She hung out with the chicks a bit, but her reaction
was more in the form of 'favorite aunt' than 'mom'. Hmmm...I'll try
Moet next, our part Cochin who was momma last year. If SHE doesn't work
out, it'll just be us and the chicks!
