    I have two broodies that are "joined at the hip"...so to speak.

    They are both crammed into one nest box and if one moves to another box, the other broody follows right along. It's been going on for two weeks now. I collect the eggs everyday, so they are only sitting on pine shavings.

    Has anyone else seen this? What would happen if they did have eggs to sit on?

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Oh yes! This has been going on for awhile here now! Some have chicks hatch, others don't. I just heard peeping under my showgirls, and I lifted them up to see a bunch of babies between them! My cochins are doing it too. I'll have to find my pix.....
