    Check with local laws first. An easement can't legally be fenced if it is in the property description. See if u can get a plat map of their property, it should have a defined easement marked on it. THEN you can fence that baby off without legal problems.

    Ok, so she got off the nest this morning and i slid in and took 12 eggs out of the nest. One looked like it had started to develope and then froze and split. In the field with it. The others i brought in and candled. Most were clear so in the field with those. One had a bit of a blood ring so out that went. 2 showed signs of development but no movement so i stuck those in my bator and will wait till tomorrow and candle again, if no movement then , in the field, with those as well. She has about 10 or so left and more than likely only a couple are even fertile but she should be able to cover them anyway. I will slip in again in a couple days and candle what's left and leave any that are good but don't want her wasting her time for no reward.
