I have an unexpected broody blue hen! I did not know she was sitting until the night before last which was Sunday night. She had 5 eggs under her Sunday night, 3 of which had babies growing! Very visible veins and I could even see the baby in there! Very cool! The other 2 appeared clear. Yesterday, DH went out to feed since I was feeling under the weather, he said she was still sitting. Tonight I went out and took a look and there were way more than 5 eggs under her..probably more like 8! I candled again. The 3 from the other day were still going great, the other 2 that I thought were clear, had little blobs in them, but no veining yet. So I am thinking they are developing too! Then on top of that, now there are 2 or 3 extras she or they apparently added today or yesterday. My question is, all these eggs are going to be 2 and 3 days apart for hatching, is this ok with a broody hen??? Should I take away the first group to hatch so she will continue to sit?
