Finally one of the hens has gone broody! We have been waiting for this.Hopefully we will not be ordering chicks anymore and this girl will be hatching eggs for us. I found her in the barn in a dark corner on a huge pile of eggs.I'm guessing she is laying on 12+ They are spilling out from underneath her. She has been missing for some time now, I guess she wanted to run off and start a family! So I moved her and her eggs (forgot to count them) into the chick box and gave her a nice cozy spot to sit and hatch them out. I love watching her, She is so gentle with her eggs. If one spills out she will gently tuck it back under her.Don't get to close though! She is very protective of them and will puff her feathers up, make squawking noises and tries to go for your hand lol
I will candle them tomorrow to see if they are all fertile eggs.
