Do mussies ever stop breeding ? :)

My Patch has 5 beautiful babies hatched out on Friday / Saturday. There is 1 pied there and a couple with maybe a bit of pale grey. Know later.

My Angel has hatched a pied baby too on Saturday. The other egg was rotten.

My Maisie is still sitting on 2 eggs. Not long to go if any good. She is sharing a nest with a chook again. Cant help herself. :)

If only they would co-operate when sitting :roll: silly birds.

I have ahd the same thing happen. NOw i descide which one i want more for the eggs to hatch, and try to move the other. Occasionally they move well - other times they give up but in the long run its worth the risk.
