Ok...I've got about 5 days left till my little ones start pipping. But I've got a question about my existing flock. I know I need to quarantine the babies after hatch for about 30 days. My current flock ALL 20 Easter Eggers seem to KNOW I've got buns in the oven. Not only are they all sitting at my back door watching me...but one ran in and went straight to the bator?? Do they KNOW or can they hear the new tiny additions? I mean this is really strange behavior for my hens... I know I've read somewhere on here that others have put pipping eggs in the nest so the broody hens will snap out of it? I'm totally FOR keeping my flock healthy though...just having maternal pity for my hens.
