Taking eggs from under a broody hen

I recommend wearing gloves. The thick ones, like you would use for gardening or other outdoor work. Or developing a high pain threshold. ‘Cause when they’re broody, they really, really don’t want you taking their eggs away…

    I dont blame them thats a lot of hard work. You try squeezing an egg out of your vagina and tell me if you want someone grabbing it..the egg that is

    No more chicks for a while…we are falling behind in housing construction here, to the point where the one odd-bird-out is still living in the living room at night and in a chicken tractor (portable, bottomless cage) by day.

    Suze – it’s even more amazing when you see that the eggs are about the size of “small” ones in the grocery store…but the birds are tiny (Bantams)
