Henny Penny has a habit of getting out of her pen after breakfast. She spends the day roaming around the farm and meeting me back at the gate to the pen to be let in for supper. I noticed she stopped meeting me and figured she had decided to stay out with the hens that rather roam around the farm then be in the chicken pens. Well yesterday she greeted me with 9 baby chicks following along behind her. Seems she had been secretly laying and sitting on eggs. Now she and babies are happy to be safely in a pen just for them.
