I figured this was a funny store to tell... Last year I had three broody hens... my Rhode Island Red Bantam/Red Jungle Fowl, my Silkie and my Black Australorp. Everyday I'd go in, check eggs and I'd look at the girls... one day I noticed two hens were switched... The next day, two more hens switched... By the end of the week, the hens were on different nests!?!? At about 2 weeks, one of the hens quit, decided she's tired of this musical dancing deal... AND THEN, she comes back in and tries to fight the other hens for their nests... I think in the end, they all quawked at each other and only one hen hatched out her eggs... a measly 3 LOL Edit: which by the way, all HENS fought over the 3 chicks and at one point, I tried to share chicks LOL those chicks didn't like Musical Mama LOL and ran back to mom LOL I guess playing musical broody hens was no fun I can tell you that I tried to give them their own pen, only to have them jump off the eggs and walk towards the house or not sit on the eggs and make a fit. Sigh, silly silly SILLY hens. Now I want them to sit on eggs... : / And no one will... LOL It just makes me chuckle to think of how when I wanted hens to go broody, I had 3... where are them broodies now????
