This is what's happening in my yard
So a few months ago I had an ornery, broody hen. I asked around the hen shop and spoke to the chick-wise IT guy at my work and discovered that one way to break a hen of this sitting-on-unfertilized-eggs-all-day habit would be to stick some baby chicks under her. Apparently a chicken's brain is about the size of a walnut and it turns out it's pretty easy to pull one over on them. So, low-and-behold I now have a yard full of teenage chicks just trying to make their way in the world.
