Another brooding hen
One of our speckeldy hens went broody last week so we bought her 6 exchequer leghorn hatching eggs in an attempt to raise some of this breed of hen of which we failed to raise any hens last year. (We got one cockerel.) She's been on the eggs for a week now so we have 2 weeks to go before they start hatching.
