Found one of my Barred Rocks in the nesting box this morning after she had spent the entire night proudly sitting on a clutch of 5 golf balls!!!!!! Poor little thing, she had those golf balls smokin hot when I took her out of that box and sat her on the ground to cool her jets a bit!!!!! Well I left and went to work..tonight, Ms. Persistence had gathered the golf balls back and had added a few actual eggs to her never-to-be baby brood!! I have no rooster not only would she have to be broken hearted over the golfballs but the eggs would never hatch either! She made some interesting growly noises and had her feathers puffed out making her look like a little sumu wrestler! I carried her around a bit and let her run around in the yard with the others a few minutes and hopefully her hormones will settle down and she will give up the mothering urge!!! I could tell her they go through the terrible twos, become hysterical teenagers and then leave home anyway but she didn't really seem too in the mood to care what I said...sooooo, I'll probably find her in the nesting box in the morning...sadly wondering why the crazy woman that feeds her took away the golf balls!!!
