Eggs into the incubator
One of our hens went broody recently. We decided to buy her a half dozen eggs, plus another dozen to go into the incubator. Unfortunately, the hen did not like being moved from the small goat house where she was sitting to the chick house. She abandoned the eggs immediately so all 18 went into the incubator together. Hatching should be in a couple of weeks. The eggs are 6 wellsummers and 12 blacktails.
