Persistence

Florence (big black Australorp) and Milly (Cream Legbar) are still broody.  They;ve both been crowding in to one nestbox, trying to claim sitting rughts on the eggs laid by the other Girls.

Yesterday, I shut everyone out o fhe nestboxes for the afternoon.  Today, I forgot. But I did hoik the two broodies outside, to make them exercise, drink and eat.

This evening I put the remiaining three ladies away, sprinkled some corn around. I then called Florence and Milly, rattled the corn,  and they burst out of the CUbe, down the ladderm and started scrabbling about for corn.  They've stayed out of the nest for half an hour now, I imagine they'll be back in there soon.
