    Some of you may already be familiar with my hen Bobo...

    She's my best egg laying hen who gives me a large, brown egg every day without fail [​IMG]
    TOday I managed to walk in on her while she was "doing the deed". Her face was completely white!! She growled softly at me and pecked the camera without enthusiasm. Having no children myself I cannot imaging what it is like for her every day. Here are pics taken every few minutes to show you how pale she went!

    At the beginning:

    A few minutes in:

    Growling at the camera:


    At the end:


    Unfortunately her eggs are not fertile so we will never really know if it was a boy or a girl! [​IMG]

    Yes, our feathered gals go in labor every day. I'd holler and go pale, too!

    Does that little fence keep your hens in???

    And cute little photo capture. I caught mine trying to lay but was getting ready for work. I couldn't watch until she dropped the egg. But she was hissing at all the other chickens and it was fairly entertaining! I've never seen them act like that

    Some wise person on here once referred to the chickens as little pez dispensers for dogs. Yep, that pretty much summed up why my dogs follow them around too. Ewwww.
