I knew it. Elsa committed yesterday. I now have 3 of my 5 nest boxes filled with broody hens and another girl threatening. One of my CCL girls, Sky, saw Honey's nest full of eggs while Honey was off eating and jumped in it. I moved her out so Honey could get back in but Sky was mad, growling and looking like a bowling ball for a while.
Ana and Elsa will apparently NOT share a nest. I tried prong them together in one of the bigger nests and Elsa immediately started attacking Ana. I hope these girls will share the babies, even if they don't share the nests. I'm probably going to devide up the 12 eggs that I originality gave the two girls between the three of them.@Blarneyeggs
, I'm glad to hear that the poults are doing well
You'll have to post some pictures when they get big.Edited by Auroradream26 - 4/14/16 at 4:00am
