My broody, Venture and her chicks!!

  1. ChickyChickens
    My broody Venture is the first broody I have had in about 4 months (that is a long time for me)!

    About 3 weeks ago, she started disappearing once a day, and then she would appear again a little bit later! Then one day, she was gone...and never came back!!

    About 2 weeks later, I had to empty the dust bin into the bigger dutbin outside (where we burn all of our rubbish)! I emtied all the contents of our 7 (yeah...7) dust bins in our house into the "outside dustbin" and lit it!!

    I saw this brown thing move, and thought it was a rat. About 3 minutes later she (Venture) ran out of the bin screaming (she was nearly burnt)! I quickly hopped into the dustbin and took her eggs out! After the fire finished burning, I put her eggs back in the nest and she climbed (more like hopped) back in and carried on brooding!

    Now, a week later she is inside, with her chicks!! All happy!!! Here are some pics:
