    I have a Silver Ducking OEGB hen that likes to move eggs around in the nest. I thought she was doing it when she layed, but I just went out there and she'd moved them again and there was no new egg.

    Could she be thinking about settling down on those eggs ( [​IMG] ), or am I wishfully thinking, which I suspect.

    has she been sitting on the eggs? maybe she is getting ready to sit on them.
