South Mississippi transplant

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Thanks for all the welcomes. I am retired with 4 grandkids. I got online to answer a few questions about chickens and stumbled onto this website. I found it very friendly and informative so decided to become a member.I had chickens before but just "had"them. I am interested in raising them right and teach the grandkids at the same time. I'll be asking a lot of questions so please bare with me. Also, I am pretty much computer illiterate so please bare with me there too.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Thanks. I have a question to get started and see if I'm doing this right. I have 4 hens and 1 rooster. I have 3 nests for tnem to lay in. I let the eggs build up in 2 of them,trying to get them to start setting. One of my Amerocanas started but went from one nest to the other. I pulled the eggs out of one nest and she has continued in the other. My question is, can I move her and the nest to a brood pen(I have yet to build) without her quitting the eggs?

Hi Travis and welcome to BYC. It may be better to let her hatch where she is, and the move them to the brooder pen. 

 

Good luck

You can date the eggs with soft pencil so you will know if other hens are contributing to the pile.   You can remove any that you haven't dated.  Otherwise you will have a staggered  hatch with some hatching  early and others not for a few days.  Hens tend to hatch a few chicks and abandon any eggs that haven't hatched yet.
