And she opened out her apron and revealed a brood of little shivering chicks, with sprouting down and beady black eyes. 'Do just look,' said she; 'aren't they sweet little pets, the darlings!
Отвернув передник, она показала выводок цыплят: птенцы шевелили крылышками, покрытыми нежным пушком, и смотрели черными бусинками глаз. – Поглядите! Какие милашки, просто душечки!..

If we are right to picture the workers as the farmers and the queen as their brood mare, presumably the workers will be successful in achieving their 3 :1 ratio.
Если мы вправе представить рабочих как фермеров, а матку - как племенную кобылу, то следует предполагать, что рабочие успешно достигнут желательного для них соотношения 3:1.

Von Lembke unmistakably began to brood, and brooding was bad for him, and had been forbidden by the doctors.
Фон-Лембке решительно начал задумываться, а задумываться ему было вредно и запрещено докторами.

"They are of your lordship's own breeding," said Calvert, "got by Mad Tom out of Jemina and Yarico, your lordship's brood mares."

Two white swans came majestically by, while she was reading his letters, followed by their brood of six young swans in a line, with just so much water between each tail and head, a flotilla of grey destroyers.
Пока она читала письма, два белых лебедя проплыли величественно мимо, а за ними цепочкой их потомство: шесть молодых лебедей друг за дружкой, выдерживая равную дистанцию между каждым хвостом и головой — флотилия серых миноносцев.

You see, my dear boy, I knew long ago that there are children who brood from their earliest years over their family through being humiliated by the unseemliness of their surroundings and of their parents' lives.
Видишь, друг мой, я давно уже знал, что у нас есть дети, уже с детства задумывающиеся над своей семьей, оскорбленные неблагообразием отцов своих и среды своей.

The rat brood also serves as a handy food source for the peep when there aren’t humans around to hunt.
Крысиная «семья» также служит для инферна всегда имеющимся под рукой источником пищи — если поблизости нет людей, на которых можно напасть.

She was constantly penciling something, until moved by the fever of her blood, when she would sit and look at him or brood silently, eyes down.
Она вечно чертила что-то в своем альбоме. Потом внезапно, охваченная страстью, откладывала альбом в сторону и молча смотрела на Каупервуда или, опустив глаза, погружалась в глубокую задумчивость.

I wondered if the peep cat’s brood was still jittery from my flashlight blast the night before.
Интересно, может, «семья» кота-инферна так и не оправилась от страха, вызванного вчерашним световым взрывом моего фонарика?
