Hens go broody on their schedule, with no way for us to control? Right?

My two bantam Cochins are laying an egg a day, each, the nest keeps filling up. Per what we did when I was a child, I hard boiled one of each hen's eggs, and put them back a decoys. One egg is a little brownish and smaller, thought they'd appreciate their own egg being there.

I don't know if I want chicks! The man said they were in with a pencilled roo for a while, so the Blue doesn't have a chance to have blue babes, does she?

They're still in their temporary playpen on my deck(we know how that goes!) and I bring them in every night for their safety. They're in the cage that I brought them home in. Last night I looked, and the pencilled was sitting there with her head drooped, dangling down as if she was dead! I figure asleep, but I still went over to check on her. She woke right up. That sure looked funny, her neck all stretched out like that. I should have taken a photo.

Hay, that sure looks like a spunky little roo!
