Chicken Likes to go for a Car Ride and Other Fun Updates from the Hen House

Former New Jerseyan, Crafty_Mother_Trucker of TikTok fame has been posting some really informative backyard chicken videos for all interested in learning.

In a recent update, Crafty shared a special surprise that she discovered while venturing into the coop to check on her broody hens.

I’ve learned all kinds of interesting things about chickens I didn’t know before. Did you know that broody hens sit around grumpy, waiting to be moms? Then, sometimes other hens apparently don’t feel the maternal instinct, resulting in chicken casualties after their eggs hatch.

Chicken Hitches a Ride

Here’s another video, apparently she has a wild adventurer among the flock who insists on always going for car rides whenever she tries to leave the house.
