06.13.2007 BROODY SISTERS
I am happy to see that my two youngest hens, a pair of Mille Fleur bantams, have begun to feel maternal. They have been sitting patiently upon the eggs laid in the nest box for a week now. I have marked four large eggs laid by the Rhode Island Reds (who could care less about being mothers), and hope that these Mille Fleur's will hatch us some new hens. Cross your fingers that we don't get any more roosters!
