    I have a hen that will not get off the nest. Is it ok to put a fertile egg under her to hatch? She just started sitting yesterday Feel sorry for her she is setting for nothing. We do not have a rooster. I asked a friend of mine if she would give me a couple of her fertile eggs for her to sit on
