I have 2 hens, 2 roosters, and 2 semi-recent additions. Hen 1 went broody, hatched 4 eggs, and about 4 weeks in, left the surviving 2 chicks and went back to laying. Hen 2 started laying during this period. Hen 2 went broody about a week later with 6 eggs under her. 5 days later (yesterday), I looked under her (she is super hormonal compared to Hen 1), and found 11 eggs. Now I know why I haven't found any eggs from Hen 1.
What do I do here? It is my understanding that after the first ones hatch, she'll abandon the rest in a couple of days, meaning at this rate there'll be 21 eggs abandoned. If this is correct, should I mark the eggs that she has under her now in some way, and take out new ones each day? Rush to assemble an incubator to take over when she leaves? Or leave it as is?
