We have our second broody hen of the year. (The one on the left is broody. The one on the right is just trying to lay her egg of the day which the broody one will then sit on!) The first broody hen back in Spring didn't work out. She abandoned her eggs after a few weeks and as I don't yet have an incubator (it's on my birthday/Christmas wish list!) I was unable to save the little developing chicks. This one however, seems to be going the distance. Only time will tell whether she's been a good mama, and if she's actually sitting on fertilised eggs, though with two cockerels I do hope so!
