    She was sitting on the nest for 3 days straight. Then, one of the BYC members told me to get her off the nest to go eat/drink...Once i did that, she is now just walking around and doing random things, but, not going back in to sit on the eggs. I'm glad the eggs are not fertile, becuae i was about to buy some.
    But please explain to me why...Thank you.
