Ok, so my hen has been laying her eggs inside one of our empty horse stalls and we had no idea. She decided to go broody and lay on 22 eggs, but there was a problem, we dont have a rooster so all those eggs are infertile. So I bought 20 eggs and put them under her. it has been two days and she has already removed 9 of those eggs. I have not dealt with many broody hens so i have questions. 1. Is this normal? 2. Do i need to keep food and water with her at all times? 3. How many eggs do hens usually set on? thanks for any help!
P.s. she is a rhode island red.
