For 3 weeks, our oldest son has been vigilantly watching his broody hen and awaiting the arrival of her chicks. ( I posted exactly 3 weeks ago today commenting on the broody hen after our son informed us of his suspicions. )
I have to admit that I was very skeptical about the whole “hens-hatching-their-own-chicks” life cycle. After all, it had been very cold and she had several days where she was kicked off her nest by another bossy hen trying to take over. How could chicks hatch out of circumstances not “controlled” and ideal?
God has a unique design and role even for barn yard chickens and we were very excited today as we were able to see His design in our broody hen hatching out her own chicks. The whole family heard the exciting news this afternoon as our son came in to announce, “Fluffy Feet has chicks under her!”
And to think…all that excitement over chickens!
