Yep, Martha has gone broody already!
Well, I guess it is spring and she must be thinking of babies!
At least her hormones are.
For two days I've had to go in and take her off the nest.
However she sneaks back in there and re-sits!
It looks like she's going to have to have some time out in the wire cage for a couple days.
I'd love to stick a couple baby chicks under her after she sits on some eggs for a few days but I really don't need more than the five hens I have. It's a good number for me.
Yesterday I took her off the nest and put her in the yard with the other hens. She squatted down for a few minutes but then started scratching and pecking.
Then she saw the rest had made a nice dust bath area!
