Day 20...

Thought you might like an update on the broody hen situation.  She has been sitting on two wooden eggs for 20 days and now, just this afternoon, I bought three day old chicks to place under her tonight.  They are in a makeshift brooder until I can trick her after dark.  I have secured the area where they will be overnight and then we can try to move them once Clara has determined they are fully hers and she is ready to bring them down out of the coop.  I am working on a sheltered area for her to safely tend to them.  We have feed and a feeder and waterer ready to go and I will place them tonight when I place the chicks.  Wanta see them?  They are adorable!
