Broody Hen Update

Today is day 21 of our third attempt at hatching baby chicks. I am hopeful that this broody knows what she's doing -- yesterday morning when I opened her box she jumped out, had a poo, spent a long time scratching about before she settled back on the eggs -- and this morning, when I opened the box, she didn't move... So I think she knew yesterday that it was her last chance of some time on her own and now she is getting down to the business of hatching the eggs... I am going to leave her to her own devices and not check on her again until tomorrow morning, so further news then...
