    Now I have a second welsummer broody, who stole welsummer #1's eggs. They're both on the nest, one egg disappeared, so there are four left. Question is, shall I give them both some eggs, or leave them be and have them figure out who's brooding those eggs. [​IMG]

    Give them both eggs, but mark them 'A-1,2,3' and 'B-1,2,3' etc. so you can keep track of who's are who's if they start shuffling or stealing them.

    Quote: I might do that, actually. I'm just such a softie. Those chickens know exactly how to manipulate me. I may just go out now and stick some under Wellie #1 who is now eggless.
