    I have two broody hens, and if they cannot kick the other one out and they have to lay, they just share! The thing is, there is another nest box, but no matter what, they just like this one!

    I took some pics this morning, haven't had a chance to upload them yet.
    Seven hens using 4 nest boxes and fighting over them big time. One hen was minding her own business in the special broody hen nest. Glad to know they like the seclusion of that nest. Now if they would just go broody in it! [​IMG]
    Your pic is too cute.
