Nest-body 🐔

Minnie has been spending all her time on the nest recently.  At first we thought she was sick, but she is just determined to sit on her eggs—as opposed to the “lay it and leave it” attitude of the duck and the other hens.  Every feeding time she has to be forcibly (but gently) taken down from the nest to eat and stretch her legs.  But before we know it, she’s hopped right back up.  Today’s chicken:duck egg tally by the way is 57:35—due in no small part to Minnie!
