I have the sweetest little OE hen. She has never laid an egg and is at least two years old. I'm guessing that she is just unable to lay. The cute little thing found a nest of banty eggs in our hayloft (we had a hen hatch a brood up there once) and she has decided to make it her own! She is so tiny and there are 8 eggs in this nest. They are little eggs, but not small enough to be hers. She is determined to hatch these eggs, so I'm going to let her try. Its so cute to see her fluff herself up when you get near her! I'm taking her food and water up to the loft so that she doesn't need to leave the nest for too long. She's always gotten picked on by the bigger birds anyway. I'm just wondering if these eggs could be her own?? If they are, she's squeezing out some big eggs! The nest is small though, and she is able to cover all of the eggs. The only OE eggs I've ever seen were about the size of a quarter! She just wants to be a mom so bad, I'm going to give her the chance! She's so sweet, she is one of my favorites!
