A few weeks ago, I had some chickens given to me, and they just free range and usually go back to the duck pen to sleep at night. I would usually randomly find eggs here and there but I figured they were just hiding them from me. Well yesterday my two year old found a nest in an overgrown flowerbox right in front of the house next to the drieway! I was shocked. Anyway, no one was on the nest or anything, so I grabbed 10 of the eggs, and left one, so that maybe whoever was laying there would keep doing it. I threw the eggs in the incubator and went out this morning to see if there was a new egg in there, and a hen has been sitting there all morning. What's goin on here. Maybe she has been sitting on those other eggs awhile? We had some heavy heavy rain Sunday, so maybe when we had all the rain she got off the eggs? Hmmm, I am just curious here, I can't see her staying on those eggs with no roof over her. I have never had a broody chicken.
