    I have a peahen that seems to have gone broody today, she is only sitting on one egg though. I have some other eggs from other hens. Can I sneak them under her and if so how do I go about doing it?

    If she's broody then slip about 4 more under her.

    Sneek in under the cover of darkness,,lift her little butt up,and then fill to capacity,,like the USPS says,,"If it fits,it ships" maybe here tho,"If she sits,eggs gotta fit" Wear thick leather gear. LOL

    well i went out there but she must have just been laying again as there are two eggs in the same spot. Might try and put up a little shelter over that spot and give her some nesting material

    I'm still waiting on Opal eggs to be located,or just fall from the sky,search engine madness and overload here in the search mode for some.I'm beginning to think that color is "imagineary" and is only talked about,,or it's a covert undercover breeders network that only has them.
