That's ok but when you have a broody chicken laying on fertilized eggs it becomes a problem.
Last time I moved the broody chicken to a seperate area but she then got of the nest and I didn't want to move this one. Not that I can as she pecks me.
So now I have a problem , retrieving the eggs the other chooks are laying , well that's a task in itself with the reflex system, it's snatch and grab if you dare.
Those two eggs I want but I can't get them while she is facing me . I have the fertilized ones marked so I can tell them apart.
This girl is one snappy Tom. Usually my silkies you can lift them up get the eggs you want and pop them back no worries at all. This girl you only have to look at the eggs and she wants your blood .
