broody hens!

Two of the Silver Gray Dorkings have gone broody. They’re sitting on a clutch of eggs together, and I still have no idea how many eggs they’re trying to hatch.

I did candle a couple of eggs earlier today and from what I can tell, they might be about 18 days along. That aligns with about how long I think they’ve been sitting on the eggs. It’s possible that by early next week we will have homegrown chicks.

I am both excited and terrified.
