Frieda, our Rhode Island Red is broody again! We tried (just a teensy weensy bit) to break her of it, but then we gave in to her cuteness. We got a ringneck pheasant egg from a local butcher/rancher, and she is currently setting on that egg. A local egg farmer is bringing 6 "interesting" chicken eggs tomorrow. I can't wait to see what she picks out for us! With over 100 chickens of various breeds on her farm, little Frieda's babies will be very interesting and fun! I love baby chickens, and I can't wait to see her with them out in the sunshine. Last time she went broody was in November, and she had to protect her little ones from sub freezing temps. She did a great job! I cant wait to see her teach them outside of the coop, though!
