    Dark Brahma hen. Littlegrey is broody and seemed to be sitting with her bottom high in the air, When I went to investigate. lifting her a little I found....my small and ancient Warren hen.

    Presumably old Warren went to lay an egg and Littlegrey decided to sit on her. Even after picking Littlegrey up she still tried to sit back on the old hen. Very strange.


    What's this you're sitting....ah yes....a hen.
