    HELP! I have a brooding hen sitting on 9 eggs that we ordered and she is happy as can be (about 1 week old). Now today I keep finding one of my other hens on top of her and trying to push her off the nest! SHe is acting a bit lou-lou!! Could she be broody too and trying to take over the eggs? Is this possible? [​IMG]

    sometimes birds do that she could be jealouse and be trying to adopt an egg for herself
