    Hi, I'm new at this, and just posted an introductory message cleverly disguised as my disease question. So I'll try here. I have three jungle fowl, no idea how old they are since they were given to my by a friend who does eggs kind of commercially. They were wild, and real "chickens" when I got them, but after two months of me wooing them they are doing pretty well. Problem is, now they suddenly took to the coop, to the same laying box, and it seems like the bigger one, Letitia, is covering with her wings the smallest one, Miss Bunny. All three, as I said, are in there, piled on top of Bunny, and come out only two times a day for a little food and water. It has been three days now, and I'm really worried. They went from laying three eggs a day to no eggs, and not moving. What's wrong with them?

    Get some eggs & put some in 3 different nest boxes. All 3 went broody at the same time. They want to be MOMMYS!
