Chickens Stories from Our Nest

3 Broody Hens

Broody hens, I’ve got 3
Won’t somebody rescue me!
They sit all day and growl and squack
They do not leave to take a walk
Fluffed out upon the nest they sit
Tail feathers spanned to throw a fit
No Silkie eggs that they protect
No Silkie eggs for us to collect
Invisible are the eggs they see
Broody hens, I’ve got 3
-Tilly’s Nest

I am at my wit’s end with these girls.  Spring is definitely in the air.  I don’t mind that they are broody really,  I just miss their eggs.  Sometimes the best things do come in small packages. I just hope they start laying for Easter time.  Won’t the Silkie eggs make the most adorable dyed Easter Eggs?
