If these two chickens stay on track, my wish for baby chicks will come true!
This is one of the Blue Laced Red Wyandottes. She’s sitting on the nest. As of yesterday, she had laid one egg and I’ve given her two more that were laid by other chickens in that coop so she’s now sitting on three eggs. The last time these chickens hatched eggs, it was three baby chicks and all three wer roosters.
There are four hens and one rooster and these chickens are about worthless. Every time I go near them, the hens act like I have a butcher knife and am going to chop off their heads. The rooster wants to kill me. I don’t want these chickens to keep having babies but I need more hens. Mine are getting older.
I was wishing chickens in the other coop would sit on eggs and then I could go to Tractor Supply and buy baby chicks and make them think their eggs had hatched. I’d have new hens!
But now, we won’t go out and I don’t even know if there are still baby chickens at Tractor Supply but one of the chickens in the other coop is sitting on eggs!
They both started sitting about the same time so if everything works out, I can take the babies from the Wyandotte and place them under the black chicken. Then, I won’t be adding any chickens to the bad coop but I will be adding more chickens to my flock.
We’ll see how it goes. Sometimes hens get tired of sitting on eggs and give up. Sometimes a snake goes in and eats all the eggs.
We won’t count our chickens til they hatch!
