Clutch

Queen Anne, our Silver Laced Wyandotte hen, is broody. After a few days we decided to let her have some eggs to sit on. We moved her from the hen-house last night and this afternoon we gave her a clutch of eggs. (Blue/green eggs courtesy of a friend.)

Here she is, shortly after egg-handover. In a few moments she pulled all the eggs in, where they will be warm and cozy. And now we wait and see. 21 days, if she proves a committed mother.
