I have a banty EE hen that is currently sitting on her THIRD clutch of eggs and she's not even a year old (she will be 1yr next month). She's hatched and raised 2 groups of chicks, just 'weaned' her last bunch about 2 weeks ago. The girl will lay 7-8 eggs and then must sit She free ranges and is a master nest hider. Currently she's sitting/sharing on a nest with a guinea hen, don't know how that's going to work out for her. They're all guinea eggs (I looked under them and nearly lost all my arm skin ), she just decided to sit with the guinea. Has anyone had a hen that pretty much stayed in Mama-Mode?
