Amy and Autumn have been brooding (sitting) on eggs in their nest box together for just about 3 weeks. The timing couldn't have been more perfect for a new Spring baby chick! As you can see from the photo to the left, we spotted a pipped egg on Tuesday morning when Autumn hopped up for her morning food and water. The hens rarely leave the nests and Autumn and Amy take turns with their once a day meals. I hopped in quickly to check on them since I knew I wouldn't have long to peek and managed to snap this photo. We were excited and worried because these two ladies were our first broody pair of hens to successfully sit so long. The fact that they were sitting together added to me nervousness for the safety and health of the chick.
