She may not be of show quality - her legs aren't that yellow and her lacing not well defined but as a broody hen and mother she is star quality.
Although a young bird - from a 2010 hatch, she has already this season successfully raised one brood. 10 Exchequer Leghorn eggs were set under her, all 10 hatched and all 10 chicks survived.
She proved to be an excellent mum, protective of her chicks yet accepting of human interference.
Just before the chicks were 6 weeks old she came back into lay and has been laying regularly since.
She is now broody again and I have no reason to doubt she will once again sit tight and successfully raise a brood.
With care, she should move without becoming unsettled.
She is available to buy along with a clutch of 10 hatching eggs of choice....
