    Hi All,

    I am so happy that i made my hen go broody. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]Well at least she is spending this night in the nest with fake eggs. She has been laying since 1 month. and almost a brown egg a day.

    These are her pics from before being broody.
    Is she dark cornish or a game hen/mix ?

    That is one fabulous looking hen! She looks (breed-wise) like this fighting cock I adopted from the SPCA several years ago (we rescued him from a ring he was apparently made to fight in).
