Just because I love my chickens and have not featured them recently.
They are lovely.
But they are whores. Crack (ed corn) whores to be precise. They happily give up their potential children, EVERYDAY for a taste of the grain.
Here they are neck deep in the crack (ed corn) bucket. Have you no shame?
Eggs are just ovulations. Without the rooster the eggs will never become chicks. the hens don't know this and sometimes they will become broody, sitting atop an egg or eggs trying to hatch it. The broody hen will forgo water and food in dogged pursuit of her goal. And she will stop laying. Thankfully, none of my girls have been bitten by the broody bug.
