Well one of my EE hens is broody again! Third time this year. The past two times I have not let her hatch any eggs because I had no roo. Well I guess I will let her hatch this round because I am tired of her being broody. Tonight I was sitting in the kitchen and I heard a commotion under my house. I live in a mobile home. Apparently she has her nest under my house and I heard her making all kinds of noise. All of a sudden she came barreling out from under the house making all kinds of noise. She then flew up on the porch to sleep next to her sister. I have no idea why she went nuts. Has anyone else had a broody that decided the get off the nest in the middle of the night? I want to give her a few days to make sure she is good and broody and try and move her to the broody hutch. Any one have suggestions on what I should hatch? Thinking of ordering some Ancona duck eggs.

By the way I live in South Texas so winter isn't really a concern.

That's what I was thinking, but I looked around and didn't see anything. I can hear her banging around again so I guess she is going back to her nest. Actually I need to check and see if she is still roosting to make sure some critter isn't under my house!

Ok so I went out and she is still on the porch! Hopefully it is just one of the cats knocking around under the house. I am NOT going to look under the house in the middle of the night! I am hoping what ever it is just leaves and is never to be seen or heard again!
