Well, our getting chicks is not going to happen anytime soon. Zach went back to the Gitch’s (thank goddess) because none of the chickens got broody over the dozen eggs they laid. Bummer.
If we can’t buy one this year next year we’re going to buy fertilized eggs next year and hopefully we’ll be able to grow a broody chicken. We’ll specifically choose a breed which has its broodiness still in its instincts.
