I took action! (General Discussion)

by ZoeTX, Friday, May 19, 2017, 09:29 (189 days ago) @ BennieAndTheJets

I finally decided to take action and I ran the last little hen off the nest. She had 20 eggs under her. That made for a total of 55 eggs in that nest. Of the 20 eggs, I saw movement in 2. I trashed the 18 and returned the 2 to the nest. I thought that she probably would not sit on them, but it was hot here in Texas and I figured I would take the two eggs in that night.

I couldn't believe it, she not only sat on the eggs, but one hatched yesterday. She left the little guy and I had to take him to a friend that had babies because I didn't want to raise a single keet. I took the other egg (that still showed movement) to another friend because she had a batch she was incubating that were about the same stage as the egg.

Last night we checked on the hen and she was sitting on the nest again with no eggs!! We made her get up and go into the pen. I stayed outside for 3 hours watching her and she just paced the pen. I felt so sad for the poor little girl.
