Momma Hen

Another hen good at hiding her eggs. Once chicks appear I try to get the family caged as protection against the many ravens who frequent the farm. A couple hens have eluded me, and are so far successfully protecting their chicks.

I love the ferocity of hens. This one is moments away from attacking me.

I love seeing them all fluffed up, looking huge and formidable while with their chicks.

Broodies are the best way to teach LGD pups to respect the birds, LOL but having pups or broodies at the same time doesn't work out when I rarely have either of them at the same time. It is fun when baby chicks happen!
