Today I have 2 hens that believe it is warm enough to set. They are both broody and would like to really nail me when I take their eggs. However, I bought chicks before they went broody and need their eggs more than I need them setting.
The babies were set out today in the hen house. They will have to be caged until old enough the hens don’t attack them. This week we will move them to rabbit cages – 6 to a cage and keep them in the same area. The 6 bantams may get to be up here with the other bantams.
I had to laugh at these three girls – yes, if you look carefully, there are 3 here. They were sitting by the fountain at the front door, chatting away to each other. When they left, there were 3 eggs there. Chickens are such interesting animals.
And lest you think nothing goes wrong – which is rare, the closet rod fell. It has been there for more than a year. I have no idea when it fell, just that when I went to get a different shirt, it was down. Here it is back up, before the clothes are back on it. These things remind me that we all have interesting days.
