    My GLW has been acting really strange lately. When I feed the treats she's always up front looking for hers. She's been holding back and not stepping up. I also stopped seeing her eggs in the nest and today I think I found out why. I fed meal worms today and she was nowhere to be found. So I figure she's on the nest. I got through and looked in the boxes and nope, she's not there. I start looking around and can't find her anywhere. I thought oh no, something's gotten her while I was inside. Then she shows up for just a minute clucking and just walking around. Then she goes she goes around my shed which is about 12 inches off the ground and went under there, and stayed. I think she's trying to be a mama. I think.[​IMG]

    I'm thinking of leaving her there but I have possum problem. I killed another this morning. I just don't know whether to let "mama hen know best". She's the prettiest one I have and the only GLW. The daddy is a GLW also. I have a dog house I'm making into a brooder but can't decide I whether to use it or not. I surely dont want her hurt. Plus she lays the best looking eggs I get.
