    Buffy and Betty are sisters.
    Betty went broody two weeks ago.
    She has so many eggs under her that now Buffy has started helping her.
    28 eggs..........wow.

    Those two were my first BOs.
    They grew up in a tractor with a RIR we call Ruby.
    A few days ago, before Buffy started helping Betty, I caught Betty going out to stretch her legs, and Ruby sat on the eggs while she was gone.

    I guess having grown up together bonded the three of them. They spent a couple of months in that tractor, just the 3 of them.
