Olivia doesn't have one under her and hasn't laid in about a week but she's been hunkered down in a corner her pen all week. She usually lays like clock work every other day. She gets up long enough to eat and drink and then back she goes.
Then I found a huge poop the other night and thought it was from one of the roosters, until I saw her leave one this morning.

OMG, it didn't know something that big could come out of such a little hen.

Should I put one of the eggs from the incubator under her?

I have 7 in there now. Three are from my older Silkie and all 3 are fertile at day 9. I put 3 in from Olivia and only one is developing so I don't want to use that one. It's her very first chick.

The last one is from my other broody hen that just started laying again and is fertile so I'm hoping for another cuckoo chick, so don't want to use that either.

Yep, she's broody.

Gisele layed an egg yesterday and I slipped it under Olivia last night.

Olivia was rolling it around this morning and settled back down on it. I know Gisele's are fertile so I'll see what happens in the next few weeks.
