    Ok,so I was bored and I went outside to look @ the chickens and 1 of my OEGB was acting rather curious.She would walk into the nest box then walk out . While i was watchign her she gathered all the eggs (3) into a pile and then sat on them.I think shes going broody? Ill post pics later hopefully she stay sitting shes a really good momma.
