I have a RIR and a small white hen I have ni idea what kind it is. Anyway the white one just layed a egg next to the other in the nest. I went out to get it and the RIR pulled it under her and she is still setting on them. They are 5 months old and have been laying for a month now. Could this be going brooding??? It is cold today was 38 when I got up and about 64 now. They just trying to keep warm??? Digger Oh yeah, I have gotten 8 doz so far this year. First time raising chickens.
