Broody Hen at last

Here is Strawberry, last year's only surviving hatch besides Harney Duck. Last week she decided she was broody and  now sits on six eggs, four brown and two green. She behaves very strangely when I've seen her off the nest. Runs around fanning her tail and neck feathers at the other critters. If only she had told me before I bought the twelve banties, looking for a broody hen. Chicks hatch on Memorial Day.
