      The weird truth of it…

      When momma hens go broody they sit on their eggs to the exclusion of all else. They get up once a day to to eat a bit, have some water, defecate, and then go right back in and sit on those eggs.

      During this time they stop laying, and lose a lot of weight. So, for a bit when they snap out of it, broodiness, they are I am sure a bit stressed and hence her unhappy look. She will eat and put the weight back on and then begin to look like her old self.

      Although, I don’t know what kind of toll this takes on their longevity and over all health as time goes on.


So how about that? Go on; say something!
