Escaping to the country, living the dream, and battling the blackberries.

Has a week to go before we find out whether there are any chicks in the 7 eggs she's sitting on. She's such a trooper! Lets me lift her up to take the eggs she's stolen over the course of the day. If another hen lays nearby, Belly snags the eggs to add to her clutch. When I open up the nest box door, Belly puffs up into a huge ball and churrrrs at me, but that's it. No pecking. Such a good girl!
