Chickens Eggs Stories from Our Nest

Broody Strategies

We are in this together!

Just another Saturday in the life of these two broody girls.

Here are the facts:

These two have been broody since the beginning of March.

They are sitting on invisible eggs.

I found these two together in the center nesting box.  They are smart that they sit in opposite directions, that way, they can attack any hands that comes to check for eggs.

We miss their eggs.

Yesterday they both took a dust bath together.  It had been a long time since I last saw them take one.

I think that they are in cahoots with one another.

Often I catch them in the act of rolling another gal’s freshly laid egg into their nesting box.

I think these two are going to be broody forever.
