That hen was playing me.
She was off the eggs when I went back out there
and she went back on when I cooed at her 3 times now.
My birds are usually on & off their eggs for the first 2 days,
then they lock on, except for 1 short exit per day.
I was gonna bring her in at night until the nights warm up anyway,
so I brought her and the nest box in and put it in the brooder.
As it got dark Clodagh got in with the eggs.
I hope I'm not screwing with nature too much.
