So I have this hen, this poor little hen that I rescued from a guy who put 6 of them on Craiglsit for free (I took all 6). She is a purebred mutt from the word go. Has some polish or something because she has a horrible hairdo, so we named her Keilbasa after the sausage (lots of different ingredients, get it?). They had all been fed nothing but scratch since birth, and kept in a small coop never getting into a run or outside at all. They were all undersized and it was sad. I have had them for about 4 months. They are all doing great. They have put on weight, they lay regularly, and LOVE being in the run or out in the yard. Anyway this particular little hen went broody right after I first got her. She was so upset that I kept collecting the eggs. (I was not ready to be a chicken Grandpa, and my rooster mix wasn't what I wanted). Anyway, TODAY IS HER DAY. I got everything ready over the last couple of weeks, and wanted to do some New Years chicks and so 8 of todays eggs are under her and 8 more are under another girl. They took right to the nests, pushed eggs around, got extra leaves to go in the wood chips, and are stuck right to it, even with the rest of the flock out in the yard. I was wondering which of my girls would go broody as none of them had been acting like it for a few weeks but she started in again a few days ago. She is the happiest chicken you ever saw! Homely as the day is long, and moulting, bless her heart, but right on those eggs and cackling like she has lost her mind. It is pretty funny if I do say so myself. I will keep you all pposted as to how it turns out. Happy New Year!
