    hi everyone

    my hen has gone broody and ive just ordered some eggs to try and hatch and i was just wondering if i have got to leave the eggs 24 hours or can i put them straight under? and do i still have to candle the eggs?

    and also do i have to put her in a coop on her own with her own food and water?


    thankyou
