    Quote:that doesn't work. she will actually steal eggs out of the other nests before I get to them. she manages to get them out of the nests and roll them all the way to hers.

    darn it leave it to me to have a bird genius that is only smart when it comes to annoying me?

    She only thinks that she is perpetuating "her" genes. All eggs are "hers."[​IMG]

    Quote:apparently. she also has a heck of a bite on her. i was moving her to mark the eggs and she comes "flying" out of the nest growling , flapping and biting. I fled the coup in fear for my life! well not that afraid but I do have a bruise now.

    Now I got a very nice broody right now, her "babies" are due Friday or Saturday. All she does is cluck and pops very loud but not threatening.
