I've got 2 bantam black orpingtons, Fattie and Pattie. Both started laying about 8 weeks ago. Saturday, Fattie stayed on her nest for a while. When Pattie got up, Fattie tucked her egg underneath her. I started getting excited! But then it was time for bed & Fattie went on up to the roost. So, I collected those eggs & figured i'd just buy some chicks. But today...she won't get up, she pecks at us if we try to touch her, she's learned some new clicking sound, and even though it's night time & everyone else went to bed...she's still on her eggs! I'm not exactly sure how many she has. Probably 4 or 5. It will be so cool if she does a good job & they hatch! I can't wait!
