Hi Linda good to see you on here, was waiting for you...lol No I
didnt take that out... I have no idea what to do .. they are still
sitting on the eggs and very protective so its real hard to do
anything with them... I am thinking I need to get the birds out of
there and throw all the eggs away?...But if I do that I think they
will probably just start breeding again.. Heck I have no idea what
to do except let nature take its course.. I imagine by next week
sometime when the first egg is due the 25th if nothing happens
they may just give up and then I could remove it all then... they
are eating greens and broccolli and doing everything they are
suppose to.. so I am just letting them be for the most part.
However I did notice they are separating the eggs and both sit on
them in box. Thats all I know.
