Okay so I didn't exactly find it, my dog, Aussie, did. One of our hens went missing and I though maybe something got her. Well when I was over near the barn today aussie starts sniffing under it, and barking. I look under but don't see anything. So now i'm thinking "Oh great there's probably a dead bird/animal under there." So I went around to the back of the barn with a flashlight and see the hen that went missing. She was moving so I poked her and much to my delight she bit me! It turns out that she is sitting on a clutch of eggs! My first broody hen! I'm not sure how many, because she is under a step and it's hard to reach her. She is a silkie, cochin mix. She is a little over a year old, the lady I bought her from said all she did was go broody. So I was hoping this day would come. I'm thinking she has quite a few eggs under her, she is a big girl. And I have also been noticing latley that I had eggs go missing. Normally I could get 5,6, or even 7 eggs a day, and all of a sudden I'm only getting one. She now I've found the eggs theif too. Tonight I'm going to go see if I can candle any of her eggs, if I can reach them. I tried taking pictures but my battery died, but pictures are soon to come! Can't wait for the chicks!
