    This is my girls keeping my broody company every morning. The broody, of course, is the one on the bottom of the pile!

    haha mine used to muscle in on my broody every day to lay their eggs! She'd give a tiny growl then just give up. Removing the other girls eggs gave me a good excuse to candle the fertile ones "just while I was there" every night so I wasn't complaining till one slept in there with her and POOPED on the eggs!!!

    So now broody girl is cordoned off! They should hatch this weekend!

    I plan on locking them away from her closer to her due date. She is only on day 7, so they can cuddle a little while longer. There are usually 3-4 on top of her every morning. [​IMG]
