Hi Michaela,

Glad to know the birds are happy together. But keep a close watch on them. It's funny with buttons; you never know when one will become aggressive! We've had them live peaceably together for years, and then all of a sudden, start pecking their mates!

Yay for the eggs! Apparently, these are young females and just now able to produce eggs. Yes, they have to "get in the flow of things" to sit on their eggs. We've had some females who've never sat. I've read that if they have plenty of hidey places and lots of privacy, that it helps them to become broody. When they do feel broody, the hen will roll the eggs to one place and then sit on them. If she or the eggs are disturbed, then she will most likely give it up. It will take patience on your part, but if one ever sits and hatches chicks, you will find it to be a very delightful thing! Keep us posted!
