    yes i do mark the eggs, everyday there would be an extra egg in the nest - I really couldn't figure out if she was layin it or if one of my other hens was crawling in there with her & laying one on her ( they used to do that!!). I guess I'll find out now that she's seperated.

    That one made me laugh like crazy. I think you should post it on a new thread and have a caption contest.
