    Just a real quick question. My girls are 10 months old now. I reached in to get the eggs under my hen (they have always slept in the nest boxes) tonight and she bit me!!
    I was pretty surprised, then had another go at it. After retrieving the eggs I pet her and got a fourth bite!

    She didn't draw blood, but hard enough to surprise me. Do you think she's gonna start setting on them eggs??? [​IMG]

    Hard to tell, that can be a sign of broodiness or just a "leave me alone" thing

    Imp- Is she leaving the nest during the day?
