Nancy’s Back

Hi there keepers, just a quick update on the broody hen Nancy, it seems she has decided to return, it has been about 6 weeks since she set up home in Mani’s garden, well behind his shed to be precise. I have been over and physically pushed her out of the nest, trying to get her to come back, as she wasn’t eating, just sitting there with no eggs under her. Recently she has been coming over for feeds, and yesterday she came over the fence, and hung about all day, it was only at sunset she thought about going back to mani’s shed, but I caught her and put her in the tempory holding pen, (a welsh dresser that lives on the back deck), and this morning she seems to have resumed her place in the flock, bossing every one else around, however I think she has been knocked back a bit in the order, Dorothy the biggest hen now, doesn’t seemed too bothered by Nancy’s low grumbles.
