I've recently started working and have left the responsibility of my chickens to my husband and boys. Well I guess they didn't notice that one of our hens had been missing for awhile, because my neighbor informed me yesterday that he found her under his tree while watering laying on a bunch of eggs. I went to check and sure enough there she was sitting on 21 eggs. This is our first time having chickens and now I feel lost.I don't know how long she has been missing ( I've been working for a month now) and I'm feeling horrible. I moved her and her eggs to a small coop but since she's so young would the eggs be viable? Should I build her a coop away for the rest of the flock (6 hens and 6 roosters)? I need help. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
