    She was sitting on nine eggs in a bad spot and I moved her to an outside broody pen...that night I traded out some eggs and added a few. I figure if her sister could sit on 16 then so could she. She spent the night on them, but got off this morning and seemed to stay off a long time. Two or three hours. I figured maybe she wasn't going to stay broody but in the pen is a huge, stinky broody poop. What do ya'all think?
