    My Black Copper Marans decided to go broody on me again. This is the second time in two months. Three day two night stay in the rabbit cage cured her the first time hopefully the same prescription will work again. The big bummer is she has only laid a hand full of eggs since the last time. She needs to start earning her keep. No room to add more to the flock or I would let her try her hand at being a mother. Oh well.

    I have couple hens like that spend most time broody and hardly ever get any eggs from them.
