It may be too soon to tell, but it seems that the goddess of broody hens has heard my prayers. This hen has been settling into the cat house, where she and her sister have been laying eggs all spring. She's not setting tight yet, but when she does, I'm going to throw some other eggs under her. Who ever heard of an old dirty pillow as nest? This chicken was one of the handful that we were actually able to hatch last year, her egg came from our neighbors up the hill. She lays a lovely light green egg.
