Our young hen, I guess she really still a pullet (she was hatched last July), has gone broody. We got her settled onto 4 eggs yesterday (05/06/11). It is her first time and she is very earnest. She hasn't taken a break from the nest these first 2 days, as far as I can tell. She is in a brood box with a nest and a little room to get out of the nest. Food and water is available. It is so wonderful to have a mother hen. She can do so much better of a job raising chicks than I can. I would love to compare notes and pictures with anyone on the same time-table.
