Update on Ms. Sassy Cluck

Unfortunately Ms. Sassy Cluck’s eggs didn’t hatch. We aren’t sure what happened because we gave her three eggs to sit on and when we checked there were only two. There wasn’t any broken egg shell in the nest nor was there any evidence that a third egg was even there. I’m sure she probably ate it, but who knows. I guess counting eggs can be about like counting chickens, ya never know how many you’re going to end up with. We cracked open the two and there were almost fully developed chicks in them, so the chicks didn’t die too far before they were due to hatch.

We put Ms. Sassy Cluck outside….


 

For now she’s roaming with the rest of the flock grazing grass and catching bugs…


 

Enjoying the warm sunshine and breeze through her feathers…


 If her broodiness comes back again next spring, which most likely it will, maybe we will try it again.
