    I have a big hen which sits on my leg while wiggling her head vigorously to burrow under the arm of my sweater. If I have a jacket on, she likes to put her whole front inside. There is another hen which burrows under a particular friend hen and then her friend sort of hunkers down on her like a brooding hen. What do you thing these hens are thinking?

    Some want to be mamas... Others want to be babies.
