    One of my RIR has been sitting for the last 2 days (day and night). She chose an old box in the garage that is pretty far away from the coop/food/water.
    Should I provide her a closer source of food and water?
    I'm soooo excited...I'm going to have baby chix!!!!!!!

    * Might be a good idea, though, I wouldn't leave food around her long if there is any chance it will draw predators or pests near her chosen nest site.

    [​IMG] I have RIR's and one of my girls did that. I blocked the box so she could't get in. Eventually she stopped. [​IMG]
