Do you know what it means when your hen is a grumpy ball of feathers refusing to leave her nest? That’s a broody chicken. A hen who gets the broody bug will complain if moved and quickly hustle back to sit on the nest (even without eggs), and bully the other chickens out of the nesting box.
- Kirsten Lie-Nielsen
I grew up on a small farm and spent my youth riding horses competitively and gnawing on fresh vegetables from our garden. I moved away, went to college and spent time working in customer service, but the taste of fresh vegetables is kind of addicting. Our small farm has expanding gardens, a small flock of chickens, two geese, and is growing every season.
