This is my first time having my chickens go broody, so this is exciting for me! I have Bantam Cochins is several different colors, but the first to go broody where we actually noticed her not coming to eat, was Lizzy, one of my 4 Splash Cochins. Today, we went down to check on them and my best girl Petunia (a.k.a. Pooty) was sitting with her! My Silkie mix hen Fanny was pacing back and forth in front of them as though she wasn't sure if she was ready to join them just yet. Pooty got up when I entered the room (she adores affection and being snuggled and petted), and started cooing to me, so I went over and talked to her and offered her some scratch, and she was so thrilled that for a moment she forgot she had eggs under her. Well, Lizzy took the opportunity to steal her eggs! The booger! So Pooty eats her fill of scratch, turns around, and her eggs are gone! She is looking for them, and turns to start talking to me, like she's asking ME where they are. Well, Lizzy scooted herself over then, and Pooty spied the eggs that she had half gotten off of, so she reached over and proceeded to steal them back! So far, there are only 4 bantam eggs, and I don't think just those two girls are laying them either, I think others are laying, and Lizzy and Pooty are stealing them, lol. So my daughter got the idea to slip a couple of standard sized eggs under them, so that maybe they will have 3 eggs each to share, and Lizzy tried to steal those too, lol. It was funny watching her try to roll this big ole Wyandotte egg up under, cause it wasn't fitting! She glared at me when I started laughing at her. Eventually she managed to get it under her. They are nesting together and sharing the eggs. I did notice a crack in one, probably from the constant snatching back and forth. I'll try to removed it next time I feed them, provided they actually get down to get some food! This is fun and we're really hoping we get some chicks. They will be mostly pure cochins, and I'm excited cause my Barred roo has been mounting my Barred hen (Pooty), and my Black Mottled roo has been mounting my Splash hens, so I'll be getting the black and blue chicks that I was going to work on this Spring, but they beat me to it! I can't wait to see what happens!
