you have to enclose your hen into the smallest space for the longest time, only let her leave once a day to poo and eat. To do this I have to tie her legs together so she cant move. Each time another hen comes close to her you prod her with a long stick to make her fluff up look twice as large and squawk loudly verry aggressive, you have to train her to move the eggs three times or more each day this is the hard one. I put her on a moving platform with a bit of wood in the middle so it can be rocked back and forth this will move the eggs for her until she gets the idea . ;D ;D ;D You have to teach her to talk to the eggs each day and if one dose not answer you back after two weeks of sitting, that egg gets thrown out of the nest that will teach it to answer. all this will take a few weeks best to start early once she has mastered this lot its time for her to move on to stage two.
piping that was the problem for me, I tried to teach them but each time I sat on the eggs they broke on me . so I had to use a balloon or two. How stupid I would have looked sitting on a balloon, still it worked but non of them expected to see a wet thing moving under them, gave them the fright of there life until it dried out and chirped at them ;D ;D ;D Trev
Haven't you ever wondered what those ladies who are sitting on huge big gym balls are doing, Trev? Balloons have a history of bursting suddenly and scaring the expectant mothers. As to the surprise of wet things appearing: they show birth videos at the Tafe course and have lengthy discussions about how to cope with the discomfort of it all, so they should be right ;D

Hi Pianochook I wonder if tafe would do one for the school of the air, if I could get enough pupils for them I could convert my office and put a wide screen TV in there for them, once a week, all I would have to do is to keep them watching and not falling asleep while its on. this would free me up a lot to do other stuff Trev
