I have words with my girls every morning when I give them corn but no eggs. They were laying away but so far I have not found any!

Am pleased to report there are five new chicks under mother hen. All look very good. Have put chick crumb and a little water pot in their house. Other broody hen went out for food this afternoon and one of the other hens sat on the eggs. They swapped over later!

wave Fantastic Aly.  As you know I am very jealous.  It is really strange though, not one of my hens has gone broody!

Nature is weird! I do not know what makes a chicken decide to go broody. I love watching the chicks, am wasting a lot of time just now. I keep tidying up the chicken barn just to be with them!
