I have 8 Ameraucauna Hens and 1 rooster, and I have 2 hens that went broody at the same time. They are in nest boxes that are about 42" off the ground. I have been putting the other hens' eggs in front of them and they have been tucking them into their own. I did not realize how many, but it turns out there are 13 eggs under each hen! I found out when they both got up to eat, drink and stretch out. I have a few questions: 1. How many eggs can they sit on? 2. They are spaced out a few days, will the hens hatch them all out? 3. What do I need to do? Will nature take care of them? 4. How and when will the chicks that hatch get down from the nest boxes? 5. Will the Hen protect her chicks from the other hens and rooster, or should I separate them? Sorry for all the questions, I am new at this.
