Now we have had a few broody hens and they have helped hatch quite a few chicks…but this hen takes the cake!
I found her yesterday protecting her treasures…
the other girls weren’t sure what to think of her.
If they got too close…she would fan her tail, open her mouth, and make evil noises!
She was determined to stay on her nest and I was very curious to see what she was sitting on. I cautiously picked her up and had to laugh at what I found…
a pile of rocks 😉
She was very proud of her pile of rocks! I’m not sure where she found these rocks or who she had helping her, but they are beautiful rocks.
She was madder than a hornet and quite upset that I disturbed her and her happy family. She marched outside and proceeded to tell the whole world about it.
And then in true chicken fashion, she found some tasty morsels and forgot all about her rocks.
She is back to sitting on her rocks and I am feeling bad for the poor girl, so I may order some hatching eggs and give her a ‘real’ job 🙂
