I was so excited this morning to find my sweet pepper sitting on her egg. All the others were walking around her "talking" to her like they couldn't under stand what was up. She kept yelling at them. So one at a time they layed an egg next to her and she would tuck it under her with her beak. HOW CUTE IS THAT! So there she sat on 7 eggs for what I know of about six hours. When she got up to eat I ran out with my marker to make sure only that 7 stay. Well..... that was an hour ago and she has not gone back. She is only 6 months old and has been laying just a few weeks. Could she be too young to understand and abandoned the eggs?
