    I wouldnt move her. But you might mound up the shavings around her a little. What about a couple of socks filled with beans to make a burm around her......

    Hey everyone :D

    I have a bantam d'Uccle who went broody what I thought was about a week and a half ago. Well when I candled the eggs today, they seemed almost full into the space but the air sac, making me wonder when incubation actually started. I do have a problem, one of the eggs looks farther along than eight of them, which all look farther along than the last three. See she started setting on eighteen eggs, but I quickly removed two because she was able to keep the others warm. Well two died young, two were infertile, and two were eaten by a corn snake (Now being kept in a pen in my room, sweet Ivan) I'm pretty positive the ones that got eaten were infertile, but that leaves us with twelve now, all which are growing lovely. My main concern is if the one hatches, will she leave the other eleven? I would rather move that egg to my other broody or an incubator and have it hatch somewhere else, than lose eleven others.

    So cute! Uh - okay - they aren't boys. But I wouldn't be taking any egg orders for them if I were you. ;)

    They are beautiful! I don't know anything about EE colors - there is an EE thread - if no one on here knows - maybe you could try posting there?
