    I have a trio of Wyandottes and the one nested on some eggs and they hatched, but the other hen will lay eggs and act like she's going to nest but then she buries her eggs and I can't find them. I had this problem once before with a Wyandotte too. Does anyone know about Wyandottes burying their eggs? Is there anything to stop her from doing this or should I just put the eggs under one of my silkies (who are very broody)?

    I am not sure about your Wyandotte but my BO's bury theirs sometimes.
