I just want to give you a quick update on Buddy’s Flock.
First of all, we have a new broody! One of my young hens went broody a few days ago. She’s not a year yet and I wasn’t sure if she was going to hold tight to the nest. We moved her to the broody box one night with just a few eggs, then next morning when I went to check on her, she flew out and didn’t go back. That night she was back sitting on eggs, I left her where she was. Next day, she was in a different nest but seemed tight to the eggs. That night, once again, we moved her to the broody box, next morning she showed no interest in leaving. Yeah! So, she is on 5 eggs and they are due to hatch around July 11. So stay tuned.
Also, I just wanted to post these extremely cute pics of our new mama (see New Additions to Buddy’s Flock). Mama & chicklets are doing fine and dandy. They are now separated during the day from the flock because Prince Charming keeps trying to ‘woo’ her in a not so nice way. So for the time being, she and chicks are in the broody yard.
