    When I got home Jan 2 I found my CBBQ hen sitting on 6 eggs with a 7th lying [cold] in the cage. This is in keeping with her pattern -- she generally lays an egg a day, occasionally skips a day. She qbanded her nest on the third, so I transferred the eggs to the incubator. NO eggs since! is this normal? [​IMG] [​IMG] Awaiting knowledge [​IMG]
