Feeding my hens this morning, I noticed what I thought was my broody hen standing above her eggs, rear end facing out, with that zoned look in her eyes and a pulsing muscle near her tail. I knew the signs. I pulled my camera out of my pocket and punched the button. I figured she was close to laying an egg, because she was really unconcerned with me and Eden, as well, who came to check on me twice!
Once I thought more about it, I don’t think that’s my broody hen. I think she got down for a drink and this girl jumped in and laid a bonus egg in the nest. I should have pulled it right then, but I was so tickled I got the video, I didn’t have it all figured out.
I only filmed a total of two minutes, which I condensed down for you. Talk about good timing! I’ve included a slow motion replay at the end. Share this with someone who’s never seen anything like it! Then post their comment!
