Broody Hen Drama

My Buff Silkie Randy is one of those hens that gives new meaning to the word NASTY when she’s broody. She beats up all the other hens for being near her, and even if they’re not, she’ll find a reason to chase them, tackle them to the ground, and pull out their feathers.  Needless to say, she’ s now sentenced to do chicken jail time for however long she feels she can hatch eggs that don’t exist. 

I won’t use  Randi to hatch eggs, she’s just too full of drama. I can’t even imagine what it would be like dealing with her attitude while setting on eggs.  She’s my little drama queen, and to make it worse, a freeloader! She doesn’t lay eggs, but she does have something that’s worth keeping her among the flock … her beauty.
