    What's the funniest place your broody hen has ever nested? None of my hens have gone broody yet so I don't have one. Include pictures, videos, details etc.

    My friends hens went in the goat feeder and the goat respected her eggs..

    Very funny! I wonder what would get into a chicken's head to try and start a family where goats eat.

    The strangest place I've found a nest is underneath one of my cucumber plants. 23 eggs!

    I'm on a local chat group for my area. One of her hens went missing and she thought a predator had gotten to her. They decided to clean out the garage and low and behold, there she was. Sitting on a THRONE of 36 eggs. Clearly she had some help building up that cache of eggs.

    I should have saved her email because the way she wrote it was hysterical.
