My four year old New Hampshire Red has been insanely broody for the past two months.  I finally got to busy and tired of fooling with her.  Today she hatched out her first baby, there are seven more eggs, who knows how many more are to come.  I figured if she was that determined that I would let her go.  September is just around the corner, I hope she decides to be a good mother.  I do not want chickens in the house.  I may end up knitting booties for chickens.  I guess the weather has been strange this summer causing her to set late.  It was cold and rainy, then absurdly hot for a while, now it is just rainy and not to hot.  I do enjoy babies, even if they are a few months late.

Hey, it sounds cool and exciting :)   :)

As I do have a chicken coop in my farm with all the care taking things like waters, feeders etc and if I’m not wrong then I strongly remembered the day when my first chick lay the eggs and I was very excited to watch them in an incubator, I know how it feels :)   :)
