Travelers going down the middle of the road . . . :-)
One of the hens (the original one) has squirreled herself into a dark corner, for about three days now. Because of the droppings shelf, it's very difficult to get to her. I did crawl down to her to see if she'd turkey up like broodies do, and she did -- right after she nailed me with her beak. She packs a punch! When I get a chance I'll grab any egg(s) she may have. I may put an upside-down big old fry pan on her nesting spot to discourage brooding.
Thanks one and all for sharing your experience with broodiness in Rocks!
How common is it for a heritage Barred Rock hen to go broody? Thanks.
I like that stuff on combs and also for respiratory infections. From drugs.com: Active Ingredient(s): Made with 3.3% (v-v) alcohol U.S.P. The mixture contains Canada balsam, camphor, oil origanum, oil rosemary, blended in a corn oil base.
What's the name of the product, and from what company?
Fred, how old?
Do these look like White Rocks to you? 1930s:
If the hen had been in contact with another rooster before she was in the Cream Legbar pen -- even as much as a month before -- that could be it.
PEI Chicken, your birds are beautiful, as well as their coop and your whole place.
