FOUR IS A CROWD

Sorry about the poor quality video. It's dark in the nest box. I have changed the video from earlier. Look carefully and you will see Elenore Hen and Miss Hissy are still fighting over the kittens. Elenore seems to have forgotten that she has a clutch of eggs in the nest box next door and has abandoned those eggs for the kittens once again. Cats and hen are all in the one box.

  6. I was able to see the video, but couldn't see very much of Elinore. Isn't that a riot that she has left her eggs to mother the kittens. Maybe they are warmer. ;-)

    This makes a great Mother's Day post - a chicken mothering kittens.
