Bandy Hen

This little gal couldn't wait until spring.She laid her tiny eggs in the horse bucket in one of the barn stalls.I paid it no mind since it was so cold .I couldn't imagine that they would actually hatch out.Well, once she accumulted the number that satisfied her,she took up residence & brooded upon them in December. Lo !! Six actually did hatch! Three died of various causes .She has three left.I wisked them out of the barn & brought them into the cellar and placed them in the turkey cage & hung a brooder light over them. They are quite beautiful now.I think because I give them a slice of pizza every day. (:>
