So I had a hen who I thought wanted to set, so in goes the eggs. She was not to dedicated at first, she would set all day and get on the roost at night so I never though she would hatch any. She started to set all day and night after about a week. Now she has four little chicks following her around.

Cool! It's amazing how broodies can "get away" with things that we would never dare do with an incubator. Good job, Momma! Very Happy
