Good things come to those who wait......

My little Silky hen has been brooding eggs for several weeks and finally her patience has been rewarded, sadly only one egg has hatched, the others were from the bigger chickens and as our cockerel is a dwarf breed, he can't get up on top of them to do the deed!!

Now she has left the other eggs and gone to sit on a bunch of duck eggs in the corner of the stable. Maybe she'll have more luck with those as our drake, Confit, has been rogering the ducks enthusiastically for weeks!
