    So I have this pair of frizzle cochin who are sitting on eggs they stole from my silkie about 2 1/2 weeks ago. They are due to hatch Sunday but when I checked them last night 2 had internally pipped.

    I went to check to see if there were any chicks this morning - lo and behold - one of my mille fleur d'uccles had stole the 2 pipped eggs and was sitting on them. Leave it to a millie to let the cochins do all the work and then try and claim the chicks!

    I immediately rectified the situation then told the millie if she wanted chicks she had to do the work first.
