Getting taken from the nesting box and put into the tote didn't seem to phase her much. She looked over at her eggs, walked over and sat on them.
When they came to the house I brought the tote into my craft room/office and spent the day with her since it was my work-at-home day.
I got to hear her growl and buck-buck several times today when I checked on her and made sure she ate and drank.
Last time she went broody she lost SO much weight. I want to make sure that doesn't happen this time around. I've also promised my friends that I would get video of her this time doing her growl and puff up when she's defending the nest.
I think there are six eggs under her right now. We are going to have a LOT of chickens if all those eggs are viable.
During my lunch hour I gave in and planted some herb seeds. I feel like I'm so desperate to be working the soil that I must do *something.* I'm eager to see something green growing.
