Last year around this time, one of my white leghorns went broody. I put 5 fertile eggs under her & 2 hatched. ( Both turned into really fine cockerels, which went off to new homes).
She has gone broody again & I have acquired 10 fertile eggs. My question is, how many is too many for her to care for? (They are all under her at the moment)
Also last year I kept her & the 2 chicks in a smaller box & run inside the large run. This time I thought I'd try leaving her in with the other 8 hens & see what happens.
Do you think this is wise ?
Any advice would be very welcome.
