They got to go outside for a little while today,they loved it.And I got my first egg.Do they go broody as often as the silkies do?

I have 4 banty cochin hens, and one little roo. This summer, 3 of the hens went broody at once, in the same nest "bucket". I think it would have been all four if there had been room. None of the eggs hatched, but it wasn;t for lack of diligence :)

Perhaps the group effort overheated the eggs?

They were outside all day yesterday in there own run and they loved it.She layed her egg in the grass,she must lay every other day.I did contact the person I got them from and asked if I could buy another hen but he only had two and did not want to part with them.Its to late in the season now to hatch,getting cold at night now 43 this morning.Is there anyone on here that would want to trade some orpington or silkie eggs in the spring for batam cochin eggs?Will post more pics of them outside today.Had to put them back in last night was afraid they would not go in the dog house d get to cold.

Hmmm. Never occurred to me. I was blaming the poor little Roo, but since they had no luck with the others I snuck in, I bet you're right on the money. I didn;t really NEED any more, but the chicks are so darn cute....

She doesn't look like my partridges. Will be interesting to see how she turns out. Please post pictures as she/he grows.
