Chickens are very much a part of many farmyards, but don't they leave you wondering how their kind manage to survive at all?

Currently (as every late spring) I have a rash of broody hens. They are choosing anywhere to go broody.

1) The hay pile

I have already moved on 2 previous broody hens, but today I have this.

These hens all were 'moved on' by me but 10 minutes before.


And here is one of the roosters presiding over 'his' bunch of dust-bathing ladies.

I really don't want any more chicks, no matter what how pretty the adults may turn out. If I was after a broody, then there would be none to be found!
