A Tiny Broody Chicken

Nugget, our smallest chicken, has gone broody.  She’s the only broody chicken we’ve ever had.  She stopped laying her tiny little eggs and has started sitting on everyone else’s.  Which includes some ginormous double yolk ones we’ve been getting from our Rhode Island Reds that won’t even fit into an XL egg carton.  She doesn’t seem to realize that since we have no rooster, there will be no baby chicks.  What is fun about Nugget nesting is you can pick her up.  And pet her.  And tickle her.  And carry her around.  Normally, she’s absolutely untouchable… faster than a marsupial.  I enjoy a broody Nugget!

    Huzzah for chickens! We just got some chicks this past weekend. They are currently living in my office 🙂

    We got a number of Rhode Island Reds and 2 others which I think are Silver Laced Wyandotte but I’d have to ask the hubby for sure. We also have a few living with the vineyard workers at the winery that we’ll bring back here when the workers leave for the winter.

    We’ve been getting huge double yolk brown eggs from our Rhode Island Reds. I think you’ll be very pleased!

    That’s just about the cutest thing ever! Wish I had a place to keep chickens – my dogs are preconditioned to “ignore or get outta the way” when it comes to the parrots so I think they’d be happy to share some space with chickens…now I just need to buy that elusive little farm I’ve been wanting…

    Prices are very reasonable over here in the mountains… You should consider switching coasts!
