If you have been reading my posts you would know Im having a dilemma of the girls all wanting to use one nesting box. I have a broody sitting on fertilized eggs and she wont let me near them. The other girls have resorted to laying on top of her.
I havnt many photos as I was quite busy.
So I put a thick jacket on and some thick gardening gloves so Miss Grumpy Bum couldnt peck my skin.
I lifted her whole nest of eggs with her still sitting firmly in place pecking away at me and the cord hanging from my jacket and I moved her to another smaller cage.
She sat firmly in place the whole time.
I went inside to answer the door and I came out and low and behold she was off the eggs ugh.
I checked her every 30 minutes but no she had decided to sit some where else.
So I thought let me see if I can get a silky to sit on these eggs , so in I went again and got Snowball my white silky and placed her in the pen with the eggs and grumpy bum.
About an hour later I went to check and ....
I have put some tin up to make this cage as dark as I can as they seem to like a dark quiet place when sitting on eggs.
This all happened yesterday , now today I have gone down and Beatrice has now taken place back on the nest I didnt get a photo as its pouring rain outside. But glad she is back on the nest again.
Talk about a chook shuffle
Its certainly been a busy week with chickens this week.
