Broody again…

Well we found another broody hen yesterday! She is apparently much more clever than the folks who feed her. She had decided to lay a clutch of eggs in a small room under an out building by the time we noticed her she had 11 eggs she was trying to cover on a piece of plywood! That’s quite a trick with eggs rolling all over the place. She had to abandon 3 of them so she id down to 8. We decided last night to try and help her out. We moved a nesting box near her and transferred the eggs one at a time to the nest. Last we moved her. She was confused at first but now she has it figured out. We don’t know how many will make it, but we figure she deserves to try! Check back in a few weeks and we will post the results…fingers crossed!
