Day 82 of 2020

A chook went missing.
She has a history of going clucky so I hoped that was what she was up to, rather than meeting an untimely end somehow.
Finally when doing some weeding one day, I found her - as I was trying to pull an overgrown climbing plant off a bush, I heard very nervous clucking from below.
Deep in the depths of my overgrown garden, I found her and the nest!
As we don't have a rooster, sitting on a clutch of eggs is a total waste of time. Some breeds go clucky very readily, as this girl does. Usually she goes into the 'naughty cage' (an old guinea pig cage) for a few days. She loses her cluckiness quite quickly and goes back to laying.

See you tomorrow,


Thanks for stopping by to see what I've been up to today.
