14 eggs under a broody

Thread Starter 

Is 14 standard chicken eggs too many to put under a broody Buff Orpington to hatch? This is her first time hatching eggs if it makes any difference.

If she is effectively covering all of them, it's a go.  A well formed bowl like nest ( I prefer grass hay) makes it easier for a hen to cover the eggs.  Good luck for a successful hatch.
