    You are at the mercy of their desire to be a mama.

    Unless you have an incubator. [​IMG]

    a while back I was looking for plans for a brooder and found this old book:

    http://www.preppers.info/uploads/buildingplansfor00torm.pdf

    if you check out page 68 it talks about how to get a hen to set on eggs. I would presume that it works since the guy took the time to write about it. YMMV.
