    Lavender is Broody!

    It's cute, but also kind of sad. I don't have a rooster and I can't have anymore chickens, so she's sitting on 2 golfballs. She takes very good care of her golfball babies.
    She talks to them, tucks them carefully underneath her and warns the other hens to 'stay away!'.
    I've explained to her that I have enough golfballs and we don't need anymore, but she won't listen to me.
    I also warned her that if they hatch, she had better not let the golfballs roll around and get in the way.

    These are the nice green eggs she layed when she wasn't broody.
