    Petting Buffy Like a Dog
    We all know spring is about a week away.Well hens are feeling to be mamas.

    I have 1 NewHampshire hen who has not moved from the nest,she is also refusing.She meows at me and keeps looking for her egg that I took,but know bare crest bone.She cackles everytime Specks cackles,which I think she is egg calling (Specks).


    What Might she be doing?Also the nest has plenty of hay,it's dark in the coop.
