    My goodness - one little serama hen goes broody and then they all think they have to do the mama thing! I have three who are definately sitting and a 4th one who is contemplating it. Then there is the 5th one who I think is trying to nest steal from her hatchmate - but only at night.

    It's time to have a talk - I still want eating eggs and I have enough chicks.

    Anyone else have contagious broody disease?
