A few days ago I posted that I have a white OEGB hen ( princess Prissy) that had disapeared almost 2 weeks ago and returned for a few minutes only to be gone again a few minutes later.
I FOUND HER! In the top of the barn, setting on 8 eggs! She nested in the middle of a roll of insulation.
She hissed and cackled at me when she saw me, I went into the house to get my candler, she let me look at them and all 8 eggs are fertile and look to have about 1 week left to go till hatching!!!

This is my very first broody experience ever, I am so excited to see what she has!!!

I have 3 roos and wonder who is the daddy!?!

I am so glad that you found her. Is she in a safe place that once the chicks hatch they won't fall and get hurt or be able to get back up to her to stay warm?? And yes, it is totally possible for all 3 roos to be the daddy.

I do not remember where I found it, just web surfing one day and there it was.

No not a really safe place for them to be when they hatch. They could easily fall thru the center hatch, which is where she gets thru. (I never thought she could, I thought it was blocked pretty good, apparently not though)
I think Im going to move them to a breeder pen by themselves with momma when it gets a little closer to hatch time. Im scared she will stop setting on them.
