    All my hens are hidding their eggs & setting. Only two in the coop, the rest are all over the yard. It is suppose to snow tonight and they won't go in the coop. The last strom we had a foot of snow & my best silkie was setting outside, she hatched six of eight eggs. Why did I go to all the trouble of building a heated coop if they are going to set outside? I counted 15 hens on sixty eggs, crazy wimmen. Hope they do as well as Missy.

    Silly hens! I wish my silkie would sit for me. I'd let her hatch out as many of her eggs as she wanted!
