    Don't they poop in your house? And how come no one sat on the eggs - is it a normal thing to have eggs laying about in your living room for days?!

    Good luck and look forward to seeing some cute little chicks.

    Here is a good story

    I keep honey bees and i have a little orange tree i bring in every winter to keep it from freezing lol

    Well than it started blossoming so i thought i might as well let the honey bee's do their job :) So i opened up the window. Than i left. When i came back the entire hive moved in lol [​IMG]

    Now i learned how to pollinate the blossoms by hand lol



    Your story just reminded me of that [​IMG]

    My chickens used to like to show up and leave a present on the floor every now and then as well lol. So i also learned that when it is good weather outside keep the door shut and a window with a screen open :D

    I dont know if that comes any were close to letting a broody hen nest on your coach though :p
