Do you remember me telling you 10 days ago about my neighbor Girly Girl, giving back Buff the
annoying wayward chticken? Well, after a tough week of Black Fatty chasing her around and pecking at her every 10 minutes, Buff has finally been accepted back into the flock.
When she first came back, no one wanted to hang around her. At all. It was kind of sad, and I thought for sure we were going to have to get rid of her.
But then she got lucky. Black Fatty went broody about 3 days ago and there hasn’t been any trouble since. And since chickens tend to sit on their “eggs” for about 30 days or so, we should be able to enjoy some peace and quite around here for a bit.
Let’s just hope that when Black Fatty decides to get off the nest, she will forget about how much she doesn’t like Buff.
So what do you think? Has this ever happened to you? Do you think Black Fatty will forget all about it?
