ok i'm giving up on Bourbon Red hen #2.. she's up....she's down..she's up... she's down.... enough. we just did a raid on her nest and we grabbed all but two eggs and just put them in the 'bator. not sure if this is going to work or not but we might as well give it a go. hen#1 has her down and has her fluffy bottom firmly on her nest with about 15 eggs under her. she is doing great. from time to time she peeps around the corner to see what is going on. i have food and water nearby and no one else is trying to get into her nest. hen#3 is still running around like some kind of banshee and is showing no interest in the lovely nest box i built her. sigh. well... we call her Runner for a reason but if she keeps this up we'll have to call her dinner. wish me luck this is our first try with an incubator!
