Minnie Surprised Me!

So I’m in the run with the chickens and they typically like to get on my lap. However, a couple have poopy feet. So I brought out a package of baby wipes and I was gonna wipe off the foot of Bridges and a foot of Dorothy’s. Well, Bridge is molting, resisted and I was squawking a little bit trying to pull her foot away. Amazingly, Minnie, who is a low ranked hen, came to Bridge’s rescue and was trying to tell me off. So cute! I’m so proud of her!
Oops! I meant to put this in Bob’s thread. Sorry, RC! :lau

They were back @ it this morning. 🙄
To add disgrace to their sins Wrold had tossed out the egg that was in the nest & ate it. The evidence was all over her beak!!!😒 And the nearly empty shell was just outside the nesting box. I'm hoping it was an accidental break due to an in nest squabble & not something more deliberate.

They are both now in the small coop cooling their nether regions!

I find it fascinating they are nesting together. I forget if you have any roosters... are they sitting on fertile eggs?

No roosters. No fertile eggs. I remove eggs as fast as I can so a lot of the time they are nesting on empty air. 🙄 At present these 2 are broody more often than not.
