I went to collect eggs last night and a little silkie hen had gone broody. The other silkie hen had four eggs in her nest so I grabbed her eggs and put them with the broody little silked. Now I have 4 hens sitting on eggs.
I don't know if all of them will hatch but some of them might. My first batch should hatch this week and every week until May if the 21 day incubation period is what I have counted on the calendar. I noticed today the hen who is sitting on the first batch to hatch had her head turned like she was listening to the eggs today. The chicks in the eggs start peeping before they get out. Most amazing thing I have ever witnessed in my life.
All is good today. Lots of hopes and dreams to live and lots of continuing adventures to be had.
I am of course very thankful today,
