One of our young chickens, Lucy, decided to go broody and sit in the nest box all day. After about 3 days of shooing her off to get the eggs she decided to get serious and not move. Garden gloves were required to get the eggs that day! The next morning my daughter & I set her up in our little portable chook house and gave her 4 eggs to sit on. She took to the new arrangement straight away and after 3 weeks out popped 2 little chicks.
They are very active and it has taken countless photos to get some worth using.
Lucy is proving to be a very protective mother and they run for cover and hide under her wings whenever something startles them.
The little grey one likes sitting on her back, and we have seen him/her sleeping there. The little yellow one likes to hide under her wing and peek out. Fingers crossed they are both girls as we already have two roosters.
