Doesn’t she look all sweet and maternal as she incubates her eggs?
Not so much.
The really sad thing is that there were only four that were developing nicely, and this was one of those four. I have bad bad feelings about this.
If nothing hatches and she stays broody, I will buy some chicks and sneak them under her in the dead of night. Apparently, this approach sometimes tricks them into thinking they’ve hatched their eggs.
Of course, she’ll probably kill those too.
