    We going away for a wk and usually *I* pick her off her "nest" and steal the eggs/throwing her off and hoping to break her but haven't been able to...SO, our neighbors picking the eggs up...but what do I do bc he most LIKELY won't pick her up and get the eggs underneath her.

    Babies in 21 days!?

    ***don't freak out if you have a basket of chicks at your doorstep [​IMG]

    guess we'll see how and what she does while were gone...i hate not being able to see her every day, especially since she's a 1st timer, and well...i'm OCD [​IMG]
