So one of my girls started laying in mid-september but then stopped after a week or so. She started laying again and I left the eggs with her. I removed 5 eggs a few days ago since they were covered in poop but there were 12 more. There is a little bit of down that has been added to the nest over the last few days. For the past 3 nights, she has been sitting on the nest at night but makes a beeline for the door in the morning. Last night I watched as they settled for the night and she went right into her nest and gave chirped warnings to the other girls to stay away. I am hoping that she will go broody and set on them but I'm worried that its so late in the year.
