    I couldn't stop my banty Wyandotte from being broody, so I put 4 fertilized eggs under her. This is hers (and my) first attempt at hatching eggs. Any advice from all of you more experienced flock owners out there ?

    I'm not experienced at ALL (look at my siggy)... but I know that

    you should separate her
    you should keep food near her
    don't move her or let other hens around her
