    Millie's been missing for 5 days now. We were sure something must have gotten her because she's never missed coming in from free ranging before.

    She's hard to see. I missed her the first 50 times I rode by on the golf cart looking for her.


    She thinks she found the biggest best nest box ever invented.


    Millie, how could you, and aren't you tired? You just hatched and raised 6 chicks at the end of March.

    She said "no" she wasn't tired, and that she WAS going to hatch some more. I moved her down to the broody closet set up safely in the coop. We let her keep 4 of her 16 eggs under her.


    Henry our resident muppet and all around great roo is the father. Any idea what these little chicks will look like. I'm guessing something along the line of a bowling shoe.


    Millie's settled in, although she wasn't happy about the move.

    I'll keep you updated!

    Adorable - and well done finding her. She's a cunning one. Loved the way the pictures told the story.

    How sweet! I've never had a broody, but it just seems very cool that she found her own little niche! And she didn't even give herself away when you went looking for her!!

    Hi all, she's a buff orpington. All be it, not a very happy one at the moment. She knew she had 16 eggs and now she only has 4. I just got a real talking to when I went down to shut the coop for the night.
