As you can see they use chicken feathers for their nests because that is why they are called barn swallows. The feather make it extra comfy for the chicks. Swallows can lay 3 to 8 eggs. She sits on the eggs for 14 to 16 days. Then they hatch.

  1. I love swallows! I just saw one flying around a lake the other day 😄 I had no idea they’d use chicken feathers for their nests, so that’s a really cool fact! 👍
