Go­ing broody...

One gets go­ing, then the other takes up the chal­lenge...

Your Chickens - - Charlotte's Chickens -

Ihad one hen, Flor­rie, who de­cided to stop want­ing to sit, of her own ac­cord, and im­me­di­ately an­other fell broody. Cur­rently my lit­tle Ayam Ce­mani is sit­ting firmly and hoard­ing any eggs that get laid in a row of three nest boxes. She will change her nest ac­cord­ing to where the eggs are. She is a pecker too – if my hand goes any­where near her, I get a vi­cious and sharp lit­tle peck! But I do not want any chicks – at this time of year it is still far too cold. Also I can’t re­ally have any more hens at the mo­ment – I have far too many and no room for any more. What to do? But at least this is a feel-good time of year with all the sum­mer months still ahead and lots of eggs are al­ready com­ing in.
