Guess Who's Broody . . . .

. . . . . AGAIN!!!!

Yes, it's Miss Martha!

She spent all afternoon yesterday on the nest hoarding two eggs and I took her off twice, but then she spent the night on the nest.  So this morning I booted her out and put up the cage again.  
She was in there all day until they went out into the yard and I let her go with the rest of them.  She acted completely normal.  It started raining so I let them back in their run and coop and pretty soon, there she is back on the nest!!!
I should make her spend the night out in the cage but I'll deal with it tomorrow.  If she doesn't break out of it, she may have to get her bottom dunked in cold water!
Darn hormones!!!!!

It would be interesting to know what their conversation is!!!!

  1. Hi Shirley, just wanted to ask why you don't want the chicken to brood...I am afraid I am a city girl and don't know anything about chickens and roosters...Love your blog and seeing pictures of your chickens...
