My broody BJG Alice has been sitting on her eggs for 1 week today. Some of my other hens lay in the box with her and lay their eggs. Luckily I had marked the original eggs because she had like 23 eggs under her, spread over a week, because any eggs in the box, she pulls under her. So today we went out and took her off the nest. Now, I go out and pet her almost every day, and she's really good about it. She just talks to me. Today I lifted her like I always do. But this time, I started taking eggs out. She left the coop and started yelling up a storm, telling on me lol. My mom came in and said what did you do?! Good thing I did as she had pooped in the nest for some reason. Maybe she didn't get off yesterday when I was gone, and couldn't hold it anymore. What a stinky mess She went right over to take a dust bath, and I cleaned out her nest, and took out all unmarked eggs. 1 week down, 2 to go! I think she's gonna be a great mama.
