We have a bunch of chickens, among other birds in our backyard. It's a blast to have 'em all in there. There's three ducks, three guineas, two turkeys, and somewhere around 12 chickens. They all get along and whatnot. They've started laying eggs in the past two or three months. First we would find them randomly in the coop and yard. Eventually just the coop. Then recently, they started sharing a nest. With this past week, one of my silver phoenix seems to have gone broody, and has started laying on a nest. But oddly enough, like.. everyone lays their eggs in the same nest. There were 20 eggs in there yesterday. I imagine there's more now... but then the phoenix apparently lost interest and left the nest. Next thing I know, her sister phoenix took over and was laying on it today. Long story here. XD Then the first one got in the wrong half of the yard, was attacked by a dog, but is still alive. We put her back in the coop, and when I checked on her again, she was sharing the nest with her sister. SO. I have two silver phoenix sharing a nest. One is a little injured, but isn't dead or anything. There's gotta be around 25 eggs in the nest now. Is this weird? Abnormal? Should I candle the eggs or something and throw out dead ones? I doubt they're all fertile and developing. And dang, that's a looot of eggs. The nest is huge. xD Any opinions or tips would be appreciated!
