baby fever

It started with one chicken. Then her chicken friend joined her. They’ve been sitting for three weeks now, but no babies.

Then a duck joined in, sitting on what I think is a lone egg. She’s been sitting for five days? I really should have written that down.

Another duck joined in yesterday, and a third this morning. At least one of the ducks is sitting on a mix of chicken and duck eggs. If I dare enter the coop right now, the hissing of the ducks gets intense.

I guess I’m going to let it keep happening. I have candled a few of the chicken’s eggs and some of them seemed to have something going on, but some of them seemed like a chicken was just trying to lay in her regular spot and they rolled that egg right on in. Plus, I know I can beat the ducks, but they’re scary and I don’t wanna.
