    I was digging up some redfoot eggs one of my females layed yesterday and it appears one of them hatched! Lol
    Ok, I guess it was just pure luck that she layed this clutch on top of one already incubating in the ground :)
    Pretty cool regardless!!

    Yep mine like to nest in the same spots, If I miss a clutch than it gets destroyed when they go nesting again.
