My favorite hen, Poppy, has gone broody and hardly leaves the nest. A little change of scenery perhaps will cure here.
In accordance to my reference book, I clipped the flight feathers on one wing to keep them from flying out of the garden.
What a day they had.
Pure torture for Dax.
They even followed me back to the coop in the evening.
I thought 'this is going to be so easy'... the next morning when I let them out a red tailed hawk flew overhead and cawed at them. The girls hightailed it back to the pen and refused to come out of the coop.
