    I was starting to save up eggs to incubate again so yesterday I go look inside their pen to see if there was an egg and there wasn't one. ( So I thought .. [​IMG] ) This morning I look in the corner of her pen and there is 2 eggs! [​IMG] So I was wondering if I left all the eggs she layed in her pen if she might go broody? Just a thought! I'd love to let her hatch out some baby buttons. [​IMG]
    Thanks

    Well yesterday night I decided to go ahead and put them in my egg carton because they had spilled some of their water on the bedding and I didn't want the eggs to get wet. [​IMG]

    They bedding has since then dryed ... should I put the 4 eggs I have back in there? [​IMG]
    I only need 2 more eggs to have 6 so if she doesn't got broody then I'll just stick them in the incubator!

    She might go broody if you let her keep the eggs. I have three that are sitting on eggs right now. Goodness knows I didn't plan it. I just didn't collect eggs for a couple of days and then didn't have the heart to take them away once they started sitting. Note to self: Get cracking on building more cages...
