So, my neighbor's Aracauna basically lives in my yard, since the other chickens picked on her too much over there, so I consider her my hen, since I feed and care for her. She laid her first batch in the late fall, early winter but those eggs never made it (I let her sit on them for 30 days). I just tried to incubate two of her eggs (since she has a rooster buddy now), but they weren't fertile. Today, she's gone broody again and I'm hoping this time it works out for her.
I'm guessing she's a year old now. Is there anything I should do for her, besides throw her some food now and then? She is nesting in my goat house, behind the doghouse in their pen. I THINK she is safe there - I don't really have another safe place to put her.

The dogs are quite far from her - for her protection. She's nesting in the goat house...behind the dog kennel/house thing we keep in there for the goats to sleep in (inside the house - if that makes sense). She has food and water not too far from her. I just hope the goats don't jump near her rambuctiously.
