ugh! So frustrating!
She sat on one nest for two days with 2 fake eggs under her. On day 3 I put 2 eggs under her to hatch. Only 2 because it is her first time. She sat all day on them. I go out this morning and she's in the next nest box on 2 fake eggs. The fertilized eggs were cold.
I think I'm going to let her sit on the fake eggs. I have 7 eggs in the incubator due in 2 weeks. If she's still sitting then I'll give her a couple of the chicks.
Wonder why she likes the fake egg more? Two of her sisters have 4 chicks 3 days old, another sister is sitting nicely on 3 eggs due on the 18th.
Interesting that all 4 sisters (just shy of 8 months old) all went broody at the same time.
