    I have an EE that I let free range during the day and she is hiding her eggs also. She went broody 3 times last summer and hatched out 22 chicks. Well she wants to do it again but it is still to cold as the eggs freeze at night. I cannot get to them as she lays them under a shed. I will be trying to block the opening so she can't get under. She is the outcast in the coop so as soon as the door is open to go in she flys out. She is very deterimed.

    Thanks everyone! I love watching their behavior, and I'd love to hatch some babies one day, when my "babies" (children) are big enough to defend themselves from a potentially angry rooster.
