My father-in-law bought our first hen (a bourbon) a few weeks ago at trade day. After a few days she was laying an egg here and there, and I mean all over the pen, and then EATING IT! I just knew she would never give us babies, since shes eating the fruits of her labor. Well to my surprise, she has been setting for about 9 days or so. Ok...so maybe an egg or two, right? No. Nine. She had ten and one was cracked and it disappeared. I would have never thought she would have laid, let alone set on nine eggs. Although I guess that just means I have that much to learn.
