A Broody Week...


Just last year, my sweet Johnny Drama was just a wee girl.
So full of herself.


She still is full of herself, but I like that about her.
Last week, she went broody.  
What the heck is that?
She decided she was going to have a baby.  
So she sat for days in the coop.  
Whether there was an egg in there or not.


We don't have a rooster, so as some of you know, 
outside of some sort of immaculate conception event, 
she doesn't have a hope in hell of a chick popping out of those eggs.  


So, while life continued on for everyone else in the family...


Johnny spent two days in the dog crate up on a roosting stick cooling off her bits. 
(these two have daily starring contests) 

  
She is back to herself now. 
Have your chickens gone broody before? 


Anyone live nearby?  
I've got garlic scapes to share if you want some.
They make a great pesto!
