I am so happy no one told this little hen that sitting on rocks was pointless. I am very happy that no one discouraged her from trying to hatch her ‘rocks’. Her’s is the ultimate story of dreaming big and aiming high.
Here is the original post about our broody hen.
I couldn’t let such determination go unrewarded, so I ordered some hatching eggs and replaced the rocks.
21 days later…we have chicks!
This was the first one to hatch. It is an olive egger – Black Copper Maran crossed with an Ameraucana.
I had to be very patient and wait for the rest to hatch…
The total count is 6 – 4 Blue Laced Red Wyandottes and 2 Olive Eggers.
I love the coloring of the BLRW chicks.
How many times have you had an idea, just to have it shot down by someone? How many times have you wanted to do something, but haven’t felt it was within reach? Here is a little inspiration from a special little hen. Don’t let the little road blocks in life keep you from your dreams!
This proud mama started with rocks and now has precious little chicks to care for.
