    she might try taking eggs from other hens too so i would mark today's eggs and limit her to them since it sounds like you are not desiring a handful of chicks.

    It is awfully hard to find reliable transportation for $1300, unless you have a grandmother giving up her car. That's what my kids did - twice. Usually a $1300 car has no muffler, has a bungee cord holding down the trunk lid, has a view of the highway between your feet, drinks oil thirstily, needs a new engine, and/or has the hood held down with a chain and lock. We have had that car, too. ;- )

    If you don't want chicks, then I would continue to remove them from her. I've had a good number of broodies and never let them hatch eggs. When I go out to collect eggs, I just toss them off the nest. They tend to go eat and drink and when I leave the coop and come back, they are right back in the nests box. About a month later, they are off the nest box and back to normal.

    I will give it all some thought and maybe by the time I collect this evening I might just let her sit on a few. Might be fun for my 2 daughters to have a couple of baby chicks hatch.

    I'm excited. Went on a road trip last night to pick up a Sportsman cabinet incubator I found on CraigsList.

    Now for the hard part. I need to keep telling myself:

    I will NOT set any eggs until spring. I will NOT set any eggs until spring. I will NOT set any eggs until spring. Oooh look, eggs on ebay.[​IMG] I will NOT set any eggs until spring.........[​IMG]

    (unless my CCLs start laying...[​IMG])
