    One of my buff orpington s is broody and a new egg appears every few days I marted them but I can't find the new one and I don't want to disturb the eggs what should I do?

    Wash and dry your hands well, then check each egg to find the unmarked ones. Eggs are pretty durable and it takes quite a jolt to cause damage. A hen can brood only so many eggs; too many eggs and the hen can't cover them resulting in eggs getting cold and dying.
