    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!!!!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] 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! [​IMG] [​IMG] 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!!!

    Haha, I have a 2 yr old Bantam Cochin hen currently trying to hatch 2 golf balls! [​IMG]

    Thankfully silkieluver_07 is going to give her some real eggs to try and hatch. I don't want any baby golf balls running around my chicken run!

    This always makes me really sad. Like I wish I'd let every dog I ever had, have puppies, and every chicken have chicks. They're so sweet and good. Sob.
