Mama Daffodil

My sweet Daffy girl has gone broody two times now since the beginning of the summer.  I think she desperately wants to be a mama!  And ohhh, she’s a stubborn one too.  It took almost 2 weeks to break her last time.

This time around, at about a week in, I had a revelation.  Why not try to let her mama the chicks that would be arriving any day?  The timing was not planned, but is quite providential.  I have her sitting on about 7 golf balls and wooden eggs in preparation for her to brood the new chickies on their way from the hatchery.  I don’t know if she’ll accept them, but we’re going to give it a good college try.  It would make adding 15 new chicks to our current flock of three hens much easier.  For all parties involved.

You got this, Mama Daffodil!
