    Gwen, bless her little heart, is broody and sitting on three eggs. I have her in the house because she made a nest under the coop and it's been very cold at night. She is determined, but she isn't the smartest... I just went to check on her and she wasn't sitting on one of the eggs! It was still warm so I tucked it under her but.... [​IMG]
    Somebody feel sorry for me! LOL Anybody else have a dumb broody? Did the eggs end up hatching?

    I've had them do the same thing!...Every time I would go out to the henhouse last March (and it was cold!)...I'd find my broody pitching out an egg...always had to tuck the little thing back under her and it hatched!!...
