    today when i came to check on the chickens one of the broodies that is due on saturday (tomorrow) was off the nest and trying desperatly to get out of her coop........ the eggs were cold.... [​IMG] ..... and i took the nest and looked in it and was sodigusting FULL of these little bugs [​IMG] so i cleaned the whole nest out and cleaned the eggs with a slightly damp towel and dried them and put them back in the nest and then blacked out her coop and put her in the nest... and shes setting. i just hope some of her eggs will still hatch [​IMG]
