Okay if any of you have been following my ramblings. You will know I have been chasing chickens for a week.
Well heard the rooster crowing today so went to investigate. Well he was in the old barn. So we tried to catch him lol well he knew who the weak link was and ran between my legs. The Hen #3 shot out from the corner and between my legs. Well we went back to look for more after Hen #2 in a different stall shot between my legs lol. That is when we noticed a nice little nest with 4 eggs.

Now being we ran her off of it will she come back and set it?

Quote:Man, I think it totally depends on the chicken. One of mine wouldn't come off a nest if a stick of dynamite went off under her butt, and one freaks out if another chicken looks at her crosswise.

Nine times out of ten, hen will return to nest. Only four eggs, unless she is of a breed that is extremely broody, will be followed more before she begins to incubate.
