    I may be dumber than a bag of rocks but even I knew not to mess with the wife when she was pregnant LOL.

    Well, she is now momma to 3 biddies and she still has 3-4 more to hatch. They have been given separate food and water and when they have all hatched I will move them into a larger enclosure for a couple of weeks. Moving them is more for the protection of the rest of the flock. From past experience, she will attach anything that gets too close to the biddies.
