    hey. a while back one of my aracaunas took up a clutch of 2 eggs and sat. i went outside and i saw her doing so, and i was going to break her up, but i didnt. later i had thrown some scratch grains out in the yard, so she got up and went outside. Did she know what she was doing? is that normal? i dont know. [​IMG]
