    I had started one of my Cochins who was acting all broody, on a bunch of eggs Tuesday evening. She had decided by this morning, she was done with all that.
    After pondering what to do, I grabbed one of my EEs and stuck her in the kennel.
    She wasted no time getting those eggs situated under her, and moving the hay around to her liking.
    And she has quite the stink eye with regards to getting to close to her eggs.

    And I stuck her in there on a whim. She was displaying no broodie behaviors [​IMG]

    What a great idea! I guess her biological clock was ticking! [​IMG]
