Camp Gramma 2012

This week my Grandkids are visiting from out of state.  Usually I have only one, my GD, who is 10 yrs old this year.  But THIS year, her 5 yr old brother came along for Camp Gramma 2012!  They are going to help me with one of the Cuckoo Sisters, who is 'decidedly broody'.  Remember the FREE hens I posted about on Craigslist?  Well, no, I didn't go and get them.  But its been so hot and dry, that one of my working girls all of a sudden made a decision to sit on wooden eggs and hatch them!  Photos:

She refused to move out of the nest box.  "THE" nest box - the one EVERYHEN wants to lay their eggs in!!!  The other girls were really mad.  REALLY MAD!    So.....We had to put this girl in her PLACE.  THe CHIcKeN HosPiTaL!  And, my grandkids are going to help me this week with her care; to turn her from a mean viscous monster who wants to OCCUPY into a mild mannered hen once again!
