We have a broody chicken, her name is Brenda. We have had broody chickens in the past, they have been broody for a few days and then simply left their nest and carried on with their regular chicken lives, but not Brenda… We are leaving her to her broodiness for now, to experience this process even though there will be no baby chooks as we don’t have a rooster. She defends her nest and collects all the eggs that are layed each morning from her sister chickens and proceeds to growl at us if we go near. We take her food and water and she does venture out onto the grass for short periods of time, puffs herself up, wings outstretched and runs around in a crazy fashion and then returns to her nest…
I would love to hear of your experiences with broody chickens if you have a story to share.
I love this sweet planter right outside my front door.
I knitted this camel a little while ago, he will be going into my African Animals knitting pattern book and I wonder if I could ask here if anyone would be interested in test knitting him for me? I have never asked for a test knit before so I’m not sure if I am going about this the right way, but if there are 3 people who are keen, just let me know and as soon as I have finished putting the pattern and photos into a document, it will be ready to send out:)
Wishing you an inspired week.
