I’m useless at it.
We worked it out, I even made a special chicken hatching calendar on my PC, we agreed it was the wrong time to hatch more eggs. In fact we decided to stop now and not hatch any more until spring. It all seemed very logical.
But the broody is a good mum.. and she wants to hatch some chicks.. and we like chicks.. and more layers and more cockerels for the freezer… and.. somehow we slipped some eggs under her. oops.
