That's a really good idea. When the chicks hatch do they hop out the draw ok? I'll try that next time. I always use lots of DE on the bedding. I do have straw for my other animals so will put some in if it will help. I wonder if the eggs are so far in the shavings they got crushed against the wood then. I made it very deep but know she's made a depression so could be the answer. Live and learn I guess. Just upset at the prospect of no chicks hatching. I'll have to try again after if so. She's a large silver laced Wyandotte so quite a heavy girl. She's a very determined broody which is why I thought I'd try her.
