    One of my asil hens is broody, and i would like to let her hatch some RIR eggs. I was wondering if anyone can help. Is an asil too skinny to hatch about 6 RIR eggs? Do I let her sit in the coop, or segregate her? Does she know what to do on her own, or do i need to help?

    Let her do it. But that's just MO. She will know what to do. I wish my RIR hens would go broody. Good luck and keep us posted.

    Thanks, I figure as long as she's sitting in there anyway,
    i may as well let her do the work instead of buying a $200 'bator!
