    Now that Spring has walked through our door and is ready to take over the land, I figured that the time has come to find a cure for Spring Fever.
    How about a broody hen contest?
    Nothing soothes the heart more than seeing a fluffy chick nestling next to his mamma on a warm spring day.
    But I must warn you, there is a catch. This cure includues a variety of sideaffects, such as Cuteness overload, the gimmes, and a sudden urge to buy more chickens.
    But I'm sure most of you have experienced all of these sideaffects by just checking around the forum.

    -Hen can be any breed
    -Chicks do not have to be visible
    -Chicks can be any age
    -Enjoy yourself!

    Please post as many pictures as you want and remember to leave us a little story about your broody hen!

    To warm up this contest, I'll post some broody pics of my own:

    Nieves was one of the first silkies I've ever had. The first time she went broody, 7 of her 8 eggs hatched. They hatched on a wonderful Spring morning as the sun was shining and the birds were singing.



    The chick on our left had a children of her own too, her name was Natalie.


    Unlike her mother, Natalie's chicks were born on a stormy night. Only 3 of her 15 eggs hatched.



    Pictures will be judged 95% on cuteness and 5% on photo quality.

    The Contest ends on June 1st.

    We have openings for 2 more judges. PM me if you are intrested.
    Be sure to take a look at the "Must read before starting a contest" thread stickied to the top of the OPS page before you PM me asking to be a judge.

    Have Fun!

    White Rock had five fuzzy ones with two that are not camera shy. She is my first broody hen and I feel l like christmas came in March. No greater thing than to see a mother with her babies.
