    I have noticed that 3 of my hens have been missing for over a week and couldn't figure out where they had gone. I now know, the goat's house has not been cleaned in two weeks (many things had been put off due to a major opertion). Anyway, I had one of the local boys clean it for me. As I opened up the back door to go in, there are the hens setting on eggs. Not telling how far along they are, should know in about two weeks. That is what happens when you can't do your own work. But hens are real cleaver about going broody and will find a spot to hatch out a new chick or ten for you.
