    I hope it will be, both hens were on the wrong nests last night, I moved them back. the smooth feathered hen is kinda wussy. I close her box and let her out once a day.

    the hens would get back on and off the wrong nests. I had to bring in the BCM eggs they might be saved, but the other eggs were too cold. In an incubator now.
