I sadly lost three of my Silver Laced Wyandottes that I hatched last year due to a nasty red mite infestation while I was away on holiday. My poor neighbour had to cope with it all. So moving on , their original mother has now laid a few more eggs and at the time she was broody. For some reason she has lost interest.So I have had no other option than to incubate them myself. Although I would much prefer they hatched with their mother. Last time the smell and mess was a nightmare as they grew old enough to go outside to their coop. They lived indoors in a box with a brooder. Does anyone know of a successful way to get their mother to hatch them herself. I am at day 11 and they are developing nicely.
