24 Jul

..momma woke up the morning after we put the chicks under her and decided to attack every chick. When we went to check the chicks were all huddled in the corner and she would occasionally waltz over to savage one of them. So we need to keep them inside with us. Boooo..this would have been way easier if she accepted them. Blurg. I swear it seems like whatever can go wrong with chickens usually does..momma hen was eliminated from the ‘Hen of the Year’ competetion too..we might have to give it to A* now..the funny thing is that A* was reading that in old times when an egg needed to be incubated after momma hen got off the nest a well endowed woman would keep the egg between her breasts until ready to hatch..the other day A* was saying she was going to do this with the unhatched eggs..she didn’t do it though. On second thought ‘Hen of the Year’ is cancelled until further notice.

      ..she has been behaving better now. The perfect mother as long as you are one of her kin. She don’t like those new Hatfield chicks though! Hre name is now Ma McCoy and Chickie..we have 5 names now for the birds…T-Bar, Ma, Chickie, Gonzo and Hoppy the others develop personality we will name them.
