No Baby :(

I checked on Squirty before going in to cook supper and lets just say I renamed her Hannibal Lector! All I could say was Oh No! Oh No! My husband was like don't freakin' cry! I am not sure what happened to the egg, I won't go into details but it was fertile and it got broken. Honey would lay eggs in the nest that Squirty sat in so one of them could have stepped on it in the shuffle. Who knows. I gave her a bath. If you haven't given a chicken a bath it really isn't a big deal. And dried her with a hair dryer also not a big deal and put her back in the coop. She is still broody, I am going to try and make her snap out of it. Any advise would be much appreciated!!! I am disappointed we won't have a little one but I can't wait for my chickens to all be normal again :/


  1. What a bummer. I have read in a book about chickens that you can take them out of the box and throw water on them. I've never done it before. I just wait until they get out on their own. But we have 24 hens so if one or two is broody it's not that big a deal.
