Jeff the"Proud Papa"

Bella, the last hen of our original bantam mix flock is sitting on 3 little eggs. Because I did not pay attention to when she starting sitting, I am guessing on when we will have chicks. Best I can tell, it will probably be the end of this week or first part of next.

I have often joked that she never laid an egg in her little life(she was my smallest hen)... however guess she showed me...funny she only laid 3 though. My past clutches have ranged between 8-13 eggs. I'm assuming she gave it her all...haha..seeing how she is 10yrs old. Wonder how that equates to human years?

Now, we just wait and see and hope they are not all roosters.
