I've gotten some information lately and I know some of it is MISinformation. I was told that if you remove eggs from a hen's nest, she will search for them. I repeated that somewhere and got jumped on. I was then told.they only do that when the eggs are fertilized and don't do it when they are not. IF that's true, I'm sure hormones are involved. Q: DO they search for missing eggs? Q: IF so, do they ONLY search for fertilized eggs? I'd appreciate help in clearing up this question, so I thought I'd ask where the question will reach some very experienced people. Thanks in advance!
