    My broody shares her box with her mother hen and mother hen lays eggs in there. They share a cage with my black Cochin (bantam). I have to collect eggs every day from her, and she is a good hider, she hid this one up her wing and I finally found it 6 days later.

    This is graphic, I warn you. I wasn't grossed out, but interested. I hope you find this interesting. BTW: That is dirt not from the egg, I just found a flower pot and put it in here. +That's also a bubble...
