    Hello I am writing because I have two bantam hens that decided to lay there eggs in the same nesting box. Not only that they will swap eggs occasionaly. They also take turns on eachother getting out and drinking and eating. My main question is when the eggs hatch do you think they will fight over them or just mother them as they did each others eggs?

    HOW CUTE! Twin broodies!!! They will probably both take care of the chicks, but once the first one hatches watch them closely in case of territory issues.
