Seven days to go…

Ninja is sitting on some eggs and they’re not hers, in fact they’re not from any of my hens. They’ve been brought in from our local community farm.

It takes twenty one days for fertile chicken eggs to incubate and we’re almost there. This time next week, we may hear cheeping again in our nursery coop.

She rarely leaves her nest, only coming out once a day to stuff her face with corn. The other hens have been cordoned off for now until we see what’s hatched.

  1. Being a surrogate has to be cool. Good luck Ninja.

  2. She looks like a dedicated mum! Good luck Ninja! 🙂

  3. Ninja was one of the original chicks we hatched a few years ago, she’s a rubbish layer, she’s always broody, so now’s her chance!
