    So she was missing. Then I found her and the nest. Got too excited, cause I had to move her today and she pushed all the eggs away. I can't even see through the BCM eggs to see if they are developing.

    Some of the other hens were in there with her today and they pushed out incubating eggs, to lay fresh ones for her. I ended up moving her to a big dog house, but she pushed all the eggs away and right now is out running around in the yard with the others. All the eggs are cold, but I stuck them in the bator anyway. I just have no idea how far along they were.

    OMG! My hatches even go wrong with a broody!

    If those fat BCMs hadn't been laying in there this morning and I hadn't found well developed eggs in there I wouldn't have moved her. It's just so dark where she had her nest and I don't live in the best neighborhood, so I don't go out there long enough at night to move them then and besides, they were pushing the eggs she had been on all this time out.

    I'm so frustrated.
