Broody Pullet 1

Oh it is so too soon.
Anyone need some eggs hatched?

I was always hoping Nutmeg would be the one to brood since she is the runt and lays tiny eggs. So, if she went broody - not too much loss on the production line.

Well, here she is a year too soon. Sitting on absolutely nothing. Growling and puffing away.


Update -

  It lasted for 5 days and she got bored sitting on nothing and went back to join the fun.

She started laying  on the 15th so... about 1 week after the broody ended - she started laying her tiny little eggs again.

  2. Glad to hear she rejoined the troops. If I don't want my hens brooding, I hold them upside down by their feet so they can air out and cool down. It works half the time. Hopefully your hen will start laying soon enough!
