In the Brooder
- Aug 15, 2015
Sascia has started to sit on her clutch of 9 eggs! I'm so excited. I always incubate the eggs I want to hatch but I have chicken eggs in the incubator right now so I've just been saving my button eggs. I moved Sascia and her mate to a larger area. I noticed she would go to the same spot in her hut to lay her egg each day. I would remove them daily as I usually do. When she laid the 4th egg, its like she buried it so I had the thought that she might be a rare button that will sit on her eggs. I added the first three back that i had removed and she continued to lay an egg a day. Once she reached 9 eggs, she got broody. I love watching her. It took her some time to get her nest the way she wanted it but as of now, she's sitting on her eggs. I hope she stays til they hatch. I will keep everyone posted. Yay!!!
