Cold weather

Oh I so don't like cold and icy weather!!!! I had to take stephanie and put her and her eggs back in the regular coop because I don't have any way to keep her water from freezing and no way to keep her warm especially if the electricity goes out and it did.I've read several places that say you can't leave a broody hen in the pen with the other hens or there will be problems and now I know first hand why!! When stephanie got off her eggs to eat and drink, chickzilla jumped on her nest and layed an egg, so stephanie couldn't get back on her eggs but there were 2 other eggs in a nearby nest that had just been laid very recently so she sits on the 2 eggs and leave the 6 she was sitting on so they stayed uncoverd in below freezing weather for several hours!! I took the 6 eggs out and discarded them and gathered the rest of the eggs, I guess that ticked stephanie off so bad that she's not broody anymore!!! women!!( saying this very softly). If she goes broody again when its warmer, we'll try it again!!

  1. Oh you know you are in so much trouble for even thinking that much less saying it! I don't care if it was softly. Don't make me give you that look.
