I went into the chicken coop today, let the gang out and closed the gate door. We don't want mama raccoon back in the coop! I went about my way, planting some things in the garden, watering and this and that. I then went into the greenhouse, opened the coop door on the other side and discovered our chicken Ms. Ivory is brooding! She tried this at the beginning of the fall last year and I could not allow her to raise chicks then, but I will this year. When a chicken goes broody, which means she is laying on her fertilized eggs and will stop eating and drinking to hatch out her chicks. So time will tell in about 21 days if she is successful!
