Brooder Boat Rescue

See this boat?

See this hen?

This hen didn’t show up at curfew last night. She knows better than that.

I did my head count before tucking everyone in for the night and came up one short.

Little hussie.

I should have thought to check that boat. We’ve had a hen hatch out a clutch in that boat before. Bernie calls it the Brooder Boat.

But today I check the boat. And found her setting on 16 eggs.

So tonight Bernie and I went out on a Brooder Boat rescue.

I grabbed the hen, and he grabbed 4 eggs.

And we relocated her to the safety of a nest box in the coop.

She was less than appreciative.

But she’s safe.

    Well my goodness, what was that little hen thinking?!! She just doesn’t know the meaning of having those eggs in a safe spot, does she?. Glad you were able to find her and move her and the eggs before some wild animal found her. Loved the pictures!
