Found a surprise today. My buff girl is also laying! And she's sharing the nest with the pilgrim! Is nest sharing common?

Yes they will lay in each others nest an steal each others eggs but at hatching time they will mash the babys fussing over the eggs an babys I know been there done that..If this happens put a bale of hay between them or a peace of plyboard anything to keep them separate .If you have babys with both hens an they hatch at the same time both moms will more that likely take care of them an mother all them together mine did .
