In other news, a few of my hens all went broody at the same time. I have a Bantam Cochin, a Standard Cochin, my Golden Laced Wyandotte, and my Salmon Faverolle all sitting on eggs. And the Salmon and the Golden are fighting over the same clutch, which is actually neither of theirs. They are eggs that I took from my Silkies since none of them were broody. Now the two ladies who are "sharing" the nest box have managed to hatch out 4 little Silkies. Two black and two blue. Which is so exciting since they are the offspring of Sylvester, my handsome black Silkie Roo who was just taken by the fox that showed up a few days ago. Now Sylvester lives on through his new babies, which is lovely, since he is gone. Hopefully, I will get even more colors from the other eggs I collected. My Frizzle hen is laying and sitting now too, but now I am not certain that they are actually a pair. They are both on the nest, and I have not heard the "male" crow yet, so it's possible that they are two hens. I took some of her eggs and gave them to the broody larger hens too, so if they don't hatch, I will know that "Sol" is not a roo afterall. Sol and Irene, may just be Irene and Sandy. But it's just fun to watch the girls all do what they were born to do, lay and hatch eggs. They are a great joy around here and watching them is one of my favorite ways to spend any down time that is available.
