Hi there, Rafa has now been sitting on eggs for 13 days and I am starting to get a little excited. Shes been really good, coming out everyday for about ten minutes to eat, drink, poop and have a dust bath in the sand pit. Its quite funny watching her go on a hundred mile an hour mission doing everything she would usually do in a whole day. I have a few concerns though, she has always been at the bottom of the pecking order and is a bit of a loner and she gets picked on alot, however when she comes out now the other five ladies are even meaner than ever, is this normal? How will she and the chicks manage? Will they pick on the chicks too? Rocky the Roo is being an absolute star by trying to keep them all away from her but think he is finding it rather hard to cope with all five. My other concern is that three eggs have broken so far in the nest. I'm not sure if shes done it or the others have as when she comes out the nest they all pile in to see whats going on. If I'm around I try and get them out, but I'm not here all day. She's just been out and I've noticed shes covered in broken egg and to be honest her and the nest are abit stinky. Should I attempt to clean her or will she clean herself? I rushed in and grabbed the broken egg and threw some clean straw and shavings in but think the whole thing could do with disinfecting, I'm a complere newby and think you have probably gathered that! Any advice would be great.
