    I went out to check on my broody Australorp who is sitting on 7 fertile blue eggs and my EE was in the nest box with her and when I booted her out, I discovered she was sitting on one of the fertile eggs. I went out again about an hour later and there she was, back in the nest box with Gussie, and I discovered 3 of the fertile eggs plus her own egg for the day beneath her.

    Then she spent the next 10 minutes complaining very loudly.

    What a brat.
