The Goofy Mama Chickens

Here’s the picture I posted this morning of the two bantams on the nest.

I just walked out there to check on them and there’s the position they’re now in.

Is Tiffany now setting on Louise’s 8 eggs, probably at least 3 of which belonged to Tiffany in the first place?  Do either of them actually know which eggs are hers?  I’m hoping some of the eggs hatch but I won’t be disappointed if none do.  With these two chickens being halfway goofy (more than halfway in Tiffany’s case), I’m going to be surprised if anything hatches.

    the first eggs that were sat upon will probably all come at once. BUT the eggs laid after that will hatch one each day until they are all hatched. Well that is as long as they all are covered and it looks like they are from your pictures.
    Hugs!!!!

    I do hope some hatch! It is such fun watching mama’s herding their chicks around.

    I have to admit I used to come to your site because of your quilts but as much as I love your quilts I think I am here more for the chickens. I love your chicken posts and I can’t wait for the eggs to hatch.

    I look for your ongoing chicken saga daily. If there is none, then I’ll pass on by. I do have your quilt book though.

    Silkies love to sit on eggs. They’re not picky. They’ll sit on any chickens eggs. I can’t wait to start seeing pictures of your new babies!

    I’m trying to figure out where are there heads in the pictures? I love reading about your adventures.

    Your chicken stories made me think about that old book called “The Egg and I”. Was it Betty White who wrote it? It was written in the 40s, I think! I was quite young when I read it so don’t recall the details with much clarity. Love reading your “daily clucks”
