    Well Blackberry is doing better. She's up moving more and getting use to the noise in the house.. Sad part is that I think she might have to stay in all winter. [​IMG] She'a a really good girl and hasn't tryed to get out of her tub, YET....
    My vet suggest give her a few eggs to set on to keep her busy and keep her intrested in her box. So I did... 4 EE eggs. Well she has them split up. 2 on one side of her box and 2 on the other side... She rotates between them. Is that normal? [​IMG] I know that my other girls will lay and leave their eggs and the only one that will even try to stay with her eggs is an EE, who just started laying 2 weeks ago. She, the EE, will lay, stay with her eggs about an hour, and than leave. And that is when I pick them up, since she's laying in my hay bales.

    Also, Blackberry places theses eggs under her wings. I guess it could be cause of her ankles.
