    We looked every where on Monday for the missing hen. We were sad to loose her. No feathers, no clues. GOne. We figured one of the frequent coyotes needed a meal. A hawk would have left feathers. THe remaining BO's hung closer to home, with their ever vigilant rooster.

    Today, 4 days later, I went out to a rarely used horse stall and there she was shoe horned into the corner of the stall! With 13 eggs under her!!! Apparently every hen contributed to the clutch! I know the green eggs are not hers!!

    IF she can hatch these eggs, this will be a motley crew of mutts. ANd cute as can be!

    Take a marker out there and put a big 'X' on the eggs she has, the other girls might still be contributing! Good luck with the babies!
