The broody hen business

This morning I went to my chicken coop to get eggs for breakfast.  I was greeted by 2 mean red hens.  But dont get me wrong, this is a good thing.  It means in 21 days I will have little chicks.  I have 2 Rhode Island Red hens who go broody and hatch chicks each year.  I had given up on them this year because in the past one hatched hers in May and the other in August.  Im crossing my fingers and tomorrow or Monday I will be out there setting up their little pen for privacy, I guess this time they will have to share the space.

This is Hazel on her nest 2 years ago.

And 2 of her chicks
