So, I get my broody delaware mix hen, Churkey, 4 Buff Orpington eggs to hatch. I also throw a few EE eggs in there to hatch for a friend. Here she is happily sitting on her eggs in the coop: Unfortunately, every day I check on her, she has hoarded another egg or two and added them to her pile. As fast as I take them away, she adds more that the other hens lay near her. I think she's gone mental like the Octo-Mom. I checked under her tonight...look at that pile o' eggs! Thank god I have the ones I want hatched marked with pencil...ugh!!! I think left to her own devices, she'd be sitting on a mountain of eggs!
