    I just came in from checking on eggs and a PR got really irritated at me for trying to get eggs from under her.So I picked her up and she is "topless".It looks like she has been plucked for the pot.Perfect timing for my secret pal eggs.;)Hopefully they will arrive soon.

    I lot of times they will pull the feathers out on thier chest and will "get a fever" so to speak so they can get thje eggs warm enough to hatch.

    oh my goodness. That explains why my broody white hen is bald on her underside. That's odd though.

    They don't always do it but this one has.I have a BLRW sitting also and she has only taken a few out of hers but the PR has pulled all of hers out.
