    Aunt Midnight and her niece Minnie Pearl have gone broody. It's actually kind of funny.
    I have always assumed that Rusty the rooster had cochin in him because Midnight is a cochin,
    and they came from the same farm.

    Well, looking at his daughter Minnie (Rusty/Australorp cross) I am sure now that he has cochin in him.

    These 2 girls are die hards, but they keep my fresh eggs from freezing right now.

    I make them get off the nests and walk some, but with the temps being below 20 every day,
    they may as well do this to stay warm I suppose!
