We always had bullheads in our stock tanks when we were kids. When we were bored, before we were old enough to go to the river, we would fish the bullheads in the tank. Those poor things got caught 50 times a year each. We had a mile and half of river frontage (prior to the Fed stealing the land from us) and the first warm days after the meadow was done flooding Mom would take us to the river to catch bullheads for the tank.
We never used anything but water and pull heads in our tanks. Except for the occasional frog we would throw in for the bullheads to play with.
I think I got my PC hens from a scoundrel! I now have 2 broody PC's, I was kind of wondering as I have not gotten a PC egg in 3 days. This afternoon I caught her doing the pancake on the fake nest egg....... He seems like such a nice guy too... Gives me 2 hens that go broody and claims he has never heard of a PC going broody!!!
I am not sure what I will do with her tomorrow. I might have to clean out the ICU and put them both in there. Do they have to be alone to break broodiness? If they see or hear chicks will that prolong it?
My DW made me name the British girls tonight. I have been telling her how the one follows me and jumps up on anything I am standing next to get petted and cuddled. She saw it happen tonight and came running over to get in on the hen loving! She thought it was so fun to have a chicken we can pet and hold. She asked what her name was, I said " she doesn't have one"...
She told me a chicken that wants to get petted needs a name, so I named her Lizzy. After Queen Elizabeth.
