Now why did Eagle (Arend in Afrikaans) have to go and do that for?

    We have 9 hens and 2 roosters. I have noticed that there are always 6 hens that are with the roos and the other are "brooding" allthough not really brooding because the eggs are taken away everyday. The photo is of our hen named Eagle (Arend in Afrikaans) that I just could not find one day. I often wonder if the hens aren't just doing it to keep the peace between the roosters.[​IMG][​IMG]
