...and a broody hen to boot.

This chicken is a silkie cross out of who knows what.  She used to be in a pen along with the cornish, and looked very different from them.  I used to call her the ugly chicken just because she looked different than the rest.  Rob has always maintained that she is actually very pretty.  We have settled on calling her Pretty-Ugly.  For about 3 days she was found sitting on one egg in the middle of the barn stall that is currently holding the rams.  We moved her up to this feed shelf, and gave her about 12 eggs.  I highly doubt any of her hatch will actually be hers (genetically speaking), but it sure beats the incubator. Hatch should be around june 4th
