I scanned a few of the old posts about broody hens and couldn't find the answer or I may have missed it. I know day 18 is considered lock down and I am amusing it is about the same when dealing with a broody hen.
My question is simply is it ok to move her for a minute just to get the other eggs that the other hens decide to lay on top of her or behind her or the ones she sometimes steals lol. Up until this point I have been but I know "lockdown" would begin soon and I do not want to mess up this up for her. I am going to assume the answer is that it will be okay but wanted advice or reassurance that it will be okay or not.
I have candled them and out of the 7 there is one dud and the EE egg I just have to wait and see bc I cant see thru the shell.
Thanks in advance
