Some of my girls, especially my dark hens, seem to like messing with my head. Four of my dark hens now spend all morning on the nest boxes. This causes multiple fights because no one else can get in to lay their eggs. I'm going to rectify that this week with larger, possibly more nest boxes. However, I was just out with the chickens and realized that three of the four nest sitters now have bare chests & bellies from sitting so long and/or plucking the feathers to line the nests. All of the nests are now full of dark feathers. If they want to go broody why don't they just go ahead and do it?!? They're driving me nuts (admittedly not a far drive)!
