Well, so far they are still sitting. One took a day off so I moved her eggs but she went back so I gave some back to her. Today, we built 3 nest boxes for them. They had a sort of make shift long one and were all sharing. There was plenty of room but they kept taking eggs back and forth. And I hoped it would keep all the older babies out of the nests, they have been getting in there with them at night and pooping up a storm and I don't want that. Nor do I want them to run the girls out of the nests. Well I went out to close up the coop and they were piled on top of my girls again. The have to go. Almost all of them. I just have too many. Don't know why I have not sold them yet. But they have to go. Darn critters. Don't they know how important these eggs are, they are serama eggs from frank.

Well, I think the little ones are the ones I need to keep in check. I went out last night and they were all crammed up in the nests with them. I don't know what to do. I am afraid they will make them not want to sit. Then this morning, I go out and one girl has gotten off her nest and was sitting with another girl on hers, sharing. I started to leave them and just put the other eggs in there under them. But I really think it is a bit crowded in there for two of them. I hope they will stay but I will let you know frank. Of the 4 I moved to the incubator a while back, three are progressing so far. Will keep you posted. Today I have to work on a way to get those kids out of there and into a seperate coop until I can sell them.
