    Ok everyone! I went out today to collect eggs and my girls all come running into the house (as usual). [​IMG] I went in an picked up the eggs, except for one the one my barred rock Henrietta was standing by......I went to pick it up and she took her beak and put it under her and sat on it. She did the same thing twice. [​IMG]

    I finally picked it up, but I felt bad like I was taking her prized possension. When I went back outside after putting the eggs up I heard he squawking and carrying on! [​IMG]

    I felt bad! Is this broodiness?? Or what!? [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Thanks in advance! [​IMG]
