    Quote:I moved her to an old rabbit hutch that I had outside. I am thinking about putting the hutch in the pen with the others so there hopefully won't be too much of a problem when she has to go back with everyone else...

    [​IMG] Good idea. I put my broddy in a dog kennel on a couple of her eggs and she has her own foord and water. She seems happy in there. IM hoping to replace them with a few fertile ones on Monday. My hen is a dutch bantam. [​IMG]

    Let me know how your girl does.[​IMG]
