She's Still Setting

Our Buff Orpington (BO) is still setting. She looks awfully serious, don't you think. I don't think she took kindly to me taking a snapshot of her, especially since she has been dieting and not able to get off her nest to groom or do much else but grab a quick bite to eat and a sip of water. I'd be cranky, too. I actually have noticed, really though, that she looks fuller and better than the other hens. I think it must be that motherhood glow that makes her so pretty right now.

You can see an egg peeking our from under her chest and that egg off to the side, well, I think she rejected it. Hopefully, it will just be another day or two and we'll have chicks.

    Awww...she is a real cutie! How many is she sitting on?

  2. Looking forward to those chick pics!!

  3. Phyllis,
    She has 21 eggs that she's setting on. She will hop up off her nest sometimes when I go out in the afternoon to feed. Then, after she has a quick bite to eat and a drink, she coos and talks to her chicks as she settles back on her nest. She's going to be such a good mother, I can hardly wait!

  4. you are gonna have alot of chickies! everytime i see the barn in your banner photo, i think that you need one of those bright colored quilt blocks on the barn...


Your thoughts are welcome!
