You can’t make this shiz up.
I returned home today to find that Alexia had stolen Abby’s nest, eggs and all. Forced her right off, and took her place. Have I mentioned that Alexia is tiny?
Abby was sitting next to her, as you might imagine, pissed. Blood was imminent.
I made what might have been a very foolish decision. I removed Alexia from the nesting box and replaced Abby on her eggs. I extracted two small eggs from under Abby (at great personal peril), placed them in the adjacent space, and plopped Alexia on top of them. They are hers, after all.
So, I now have two broodies, sitting next to each other, without a divider of any kind between them.
Double your broodies; double your fun…
