One of my hens had been missing for 3 or 4 weeks, I figured she was dead... NOPE!
Yesterday I was getting a hay bale to spread around in the pigeon lofts and looked down to see her sitting there sleeping. Picked her up and found 2 chicks... Dead... And an egg, So I took her and put her in with the other chickens, thinking the third egg was dead I decided to throw it... and heard chirping AFTER I threw it:(

Out to pasture
maybe it was too cold out for the chicks?? At least you have her back and she has some broody experience for the future.

This was her 2nd time, She raised 6 chicks to 3 months old and then a dog got 2 of them.
The chick had pipped internally but died after I threw it:( stupid me.
She is also now skin and bone.
