Weather has been 30's at night and low 60's during the day. I was really hoping they would take :( When I tried incubating her eggs they'd get to day 12ish and quit. So maybe there is something wrong with her eggs :(
How long should I wait to put eggs under a hen? - Page 3
- Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
it's a little to chilly for mine in FL to go broody, its 85*F with 60's*f at night- if the weather shifts suddenly I stand a good chance of needing the incubator
Well this time I moved her into the rabbit run after I saw her sitting on the eggs again. It's 8ft by 2ft run inside the coop. She's much happier and still hasn't moved.
I just started leaving eggs in the nest and actually added about 5 golf balls , my chick sat on them and laid a few more eggs but then stopped sitting on them and was sleeping on the roost. do i pull the eggs now? how do i get them to start sitting on them, i was going to try to leave eggs in the nest but i dont know how long i should wait before i start picking up the eggs.
Unfortunately they will choose when they want to go broody. This is the first broody so maybe someone else has some more tips.
This morning she was in a different box, so I just scooped her up and put her back in the cage. My meaties forced the cage door open to get to her food. They're such fatties.
