In the springtime, it seems a young hen’s fancy turns lightly to raising chicks!
Much as I would adore some little hatchlings trotting around after their mumma hen, I am not set up as yet for raising chicks, or for brooding them myself should the hen go off the set. 😦 I wish I could let her have some chicks, but I simply don’t know enough and it would probably be unfair to her, and the babies.
I have heard that it is possible for eggs to hatch if you put them down your shirt/bra, but I am not keen to find out if that’s true! Besides which, I don’t even have fertile eggs as I have no rooster. I guess, clucky as Bertha and I may be, it will be the sin bin for her tomorrow if she is still setting.
