Crazy Chickens

Tonight we left home for the first church softball game of the year. We won by the way 25 - 10. Anywho when we left at 7:15 their were two hens in nesting boxes. We had already received three eggs for the day so wasn't really expecting much more. Low and behold when we arrived back home at 9:15 three hens were in nesting boxes. Nice and cozy for the night. Or should I say nice and BROODY for the night. Luckily Betty the last hen that was broody was not one of the bunch. So now I have to go through the process of getting three chickens out of the boxes off and on throughout the day. With Betty it took her about two weeks to get her act back together. I hope the other three don't do the same thing. If they all stop laying for two week I will be buying eggs. This is why we bought the 6 new hen chicks. Need more eggs, especially when you have broody hens.
