In the Brooder
- May 27, 2010
So, I've had 2 hens (buff & australorp) sitting together in a nesting box (we're getting close to the 21 days) and who knows how many eggs (but deff. a bunch). This morning I went into the coop to gather eggs and one of the other hens (a rock) had kicked the two hens out of the box and was sitting on the eggs. A few hours ago I went into the coop and the nest box the the 2 hens had been in was empty and they were sitting on the eggs in a different box. I'm guessing that they carried them under their wings? Anyone? Does this often happen? will if effect the eggs? I was pretty shocked.
