Hide and Go Seek Hen

11 Jul

I couldn’t find my little phoenix hen.  I was really worried because of all the issues I’ve had with predators.  I found her though!

This explains why I haven’t found many eggs lately.  I thought it was because I started shutting them in at night.

Holy moly!  There’s sixteen eggs under there.  Only four of them are hers.

Great.  I wonder how many are roosters.

I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items listed at the top of my side bar.

    She’s a very pretty hen, and what a wonderful clutch of eggs! I hope there are lots of hens!

      I am rooting for all hens. I still have all three nasty phoenix roosters. I really need to rehome them. Ironically, she is the phoenix hen.

    You could candle them and let her keep the fertile ones, or try to break up the broody moody. Would she be happy with fakes? And maybe a space of her own so she cannot steal from others?
    I had a hen that used to ‘steal’ rocks and try to brood them. Poor thing never figured it out.

      She’s fine. I knly care about roosters, and candling can’t tell me that.

        Those Phoenix roosters are the worst! Or at least that’s my opinion, since they can actually fly at your face.
        Good luck, hoping for many pullets.
