This Dark Cornish x Brown Leghorn hen lives a wild life on the farm. In the winter she does not seek the comforts of barn or coop yet at least once a year she hatches a clutch of eggs. Last year her nests were in the poppies and the pole beans. This year she successfully hid her nest under the goat manger. Since her chicks grow to become wild chickens, scratching in the garden, I have moved the hen and chicks to the A-frame coop in the vegetable garden.
