Four broody hens sitting

Our egg count is down to 12-15 per day as of late.  I have four hens sitting and should have a new flock started by the weekend.  Here are three of them and they’re due to hatch somewhere between Wednesday and Saturday. All total they have 31 eggs under them and I set another one last Sunday that eight eggs under her.  I’ll update as they hatch.

When I went to shut them up last night I found another one which will make five and I haven’t decided what to do with her.
