THis old fireplace sreen that I got at a garage sale three years ago has come in so handy for keeping my broodies safe,one is due the 10th and the ohter is due the 16th.Now I have a question,both hens have orpington eggs along with the silkie eggs(both are silkie hens)under them ,one had just one orp egg and 6 silkie eggs and the other had four orp eggs and some silkie eggs,two days ago one broke an orp egg and today the other broke and orp egg in the nest,I thought they would lay on any eggs but they seem not to like the orp eggs under them,the one that broke today she ate everything that was in it.I had candled all the eggs a few days ago and all were growing.Why do you think this happened?The orp eggs were on the smaller side.
