my broody hens are INSANE. My chantecler went broody, so I gave her a dozen 'fertile' eggs. this prompted her sister to go broody also, and i kept catching our brahma sitting on the nest if the twins went out to get food or go poo. so I got another dozen for the hens to share, but this dozen is a week younger than the first dozen. anyway, i just snuck out into the coop (checked the latch before I went in so i wouldn't get stuck again!), to candle, and somehow, the brahma has stolen ALL the eggs. luckily, i marked week 1 with an X and week 2 with an O... so i just had to move all hens and reorganize all the eggs... silly broodies!
