I had my first broody hen this spring. She hadnt been broody, but after I started hatching the incubator chicks, she jumped right into it... under the deck. Sunday morning, 21 days after the first night out of the coop, and sure enough, 2 new beautiful chicks. She is protected for now and still has a few more eggs. So we will see how many she ends up with total. Now I need to look into integrating her back into the flock. Pictures to come!
