And a pheasant hen. (In an ugly pen. The pigeons are molting and they killed the plants)

@MeanCheek so pretty!

I have two roosters to fond a home for, no one wants them ;(

I have a Brahma who has been sitting for 2 days, gave her a couple rocks, and she tucked them under. I am on the fence of letting her set eggs. They would just be fully feathered and weaned around the end of Dec, cold! I hope she is the last one for the year ;) need to look into expanding the coop next year, plenty of room now but want more later, lol

My last hatches are in a couple weeks. I'd taken the eggs from a hen in one pen because of squabbling and eggs not always being covered. Stuffed them in the bator. Hen decided she wouldn't be broody anymore.

Molly was getting the chicks anyway. So I'm not worried. She will sit for 2 months if she doesn't get chicks as I found last January. Better to just get her over it. She also is the best broody out there.
