Broody Silkie!

Yesterday, Jennie observed that one of the Silkie hens wouldn’t come out of the nesting box. “She’s either in the middle of laying or she’s gone broody”, was the comment.

Well, she was still there this morning and didn’t leave until I booted her out for lunch (melon, banana, plum and bread crumbs).

Considering the chilly wind that’s currently blowing through the orchard and the fact that all the water containers have had ice on them in the morning for the past three or four days, not to mention the fact that it’s now November, can someone come up to the farm and kindly inform this chicken that she a bit stupid?!

Ah well, the boys are having a Halloween / Bonfire party tonight and there will be fireworks so that might do the trick. I hope!
