I have a cochin bantam that is laying on 10+ eggs. She covers all of them with her body but do I have to worry that not all the eggs are will incubate properly even though her whole body covers them? Note some of the eggs are bantam size and others are normal size. I know if the I can see the eggs there are too many.
1 standard hen can incubate 13 regular eggs max and 18-25 bantam eggs max but heavy breeds can cover more
1 bantam hen can incubate 7-10 bantam eggs and up to 4-6 regular eggs heavy breed bantams can cover more
My austrolorp dissapeard and I found her with 16 egg under her. Unfortunately infertile. but she did accept the chicks I gave her.
