    Last week, I had knee surgery. It is a bit tough, but today my niece who is taking care of my birds, brought in the news that she thinks we have a broody hen. We have been hoping for weeks.

    I have special eggs on hold, so quickly notified them. And if the thought of baby chicks won't get me off this bed in a couple of weeks, nothing will! I love having a hobby.

    Nothing like chicken business to get a sick or hurting person moving. Did you have a replacement of that knee? And what are the eggs you have coming? I'm so excited for you.

    Through my illness and recovery, my animals were sometimes the only things that got me up and out [​IMG]. A broody is such a blessing, I hope you get to stuff her with eggs and have a great hatch rate!

    And prayers for a speedy recovery.
