    ok I dont see this question enough so I thought I would ask because I would like to know how to do it!

    When you put eggs underneath a chicken when they sleep, wont there legs go up as well because they sleep tucked! and if this is the case do you have the chickens stand on the eggs or do you put the eggs around the chicken as good as you can?

    Better question to sum it up: How do you properly put the eggs under the chicken w/out have the chicken crushing them?
