Hi everyone ! I'm new here and to chicken life. I have a RIR hen. She has had one set of babies and was a good mommy. 5 out of 6 hatched in June and still live on. So I put her back in with her boyfriend and they have be *ahem* enjoying each other. Now the eggs are coming. 9 so far in 11 days. Now isn't it 21 days from incubation till hatching? Another dumb question. Does incubation mean when she has gone broody or when they got laid? And with that many eggs shouldnt she be broody by now? The pile is soooooooo huge now and it's not cold outside because I live in Florida but it gets darn chilly some nights. When will she go broody? I'm worried I don't have a big fancy incubator and don't really have the money for one and my other chickens are all only like 6 months and I don't think they will set on them yet. Thank you for your advise!!!
