    I just received some dark Brahma eggs. I have a broody bantam hen right now who has been sitting on eggs for 3-1/2 weeks (not fertile). I finally threw them out while she was off the nest but now she is sitting on any egg she can find. Would it be better to give her these new ones or put them in my incubator?
