    Hazel has been broody a bit and we've been closing things off so she can't sit. She was out all day. I went to lock them up and Hazel had already gone up into the coop then Nugget went up a bit later. When I went to lock them up, I saw this....

    Guess she found something to sit on!

    Lol! I wonder how Nugget feels about that. Maybe it's warm.

    Thanks for posting that pic, it's the first time I have smiled since losing my four 3 month old pullets to a pack of dogs 3 nights ago. I have an Ameracauna who likes to be under someone else, or at least under a wing.

    Haha!!
    Looks like nugget is 'hiding', have seen many birds do this...
    ...sometimes it's accepted, sometimes not so much.
