    So, if you remember my little broody lady Frost (The Hollywood Show girl as you all put it) the hen who had her egg stolen by my egg thief of a little brother...
    Well, today she has attempted to be broody again. She has stayed put all day in the same spot with her little eggs. So, I decided to be nice and give her one of my fertile EE eggs from outside and see what happens. She is now diligently guarding that egg like her life depends on it! And every time my little brother goes down stairs she squawks at him like shes under attack, which of course sends me flying to the basement...Boy she has me figured out.
    Anyway, I found this amusing and thought I should share. Hope I gave you all a giggle!

    x3 I am absolutely surprised at how diligent she is being. Probably due to my little brother stealing her last little egg. But she has successfully sucked her little show girl neck right up close to her body and hidden herself from view.
    I have never had a broody hen before, but I think its adorable XD
