Cuba, one of our chooks, went broody this week. There are two things you can do for a broody hen. Either give her some fertilised eggs to incubate over 21 days, or place her in a cage in full sunlight with plenty of air, clean water and food.
I live outside Melbourne, Australia on a quarter acre permaculture plot with my girlfriend Meg Ulman and son Zephyr. Together, as Artist as Family, we are making the transition to food, water and energy sustainability as part of the Hepburn Relocalisation Network (HRN).
NB. My Garden Notes for Relocalisation blog accompanies the more theoretical blog Permapoesis. The posts on GNFR from October 2008 - July 2009 have been imported from the blog The Garden of Self Defence.
