    Thats funny! Does it have a mama? I mean you knew about the egg, and just maybe thought it wouldn't hatch? Sorry if that sounds dumb.

    well I set eggs under a hen and 3 others have been fighting over the nest for a couple weeks. Today is day24 and I didn't think I get any. I checked this morning and nothing. But at 2:00 I had one. I might get more but I am not sure.
