My GLW young hen started sitting on unfertiflized eggs in one of our two nesting boxes. (we only have 5 hens). We moved her to a wire crate and made a nesting area for her. Then we purchased some fertilized silkie eggs put three with her and the rest in incubator while we saw if she would continue to sit. Then we candled eggs after 1 1/2 weeks culled the bad eggs and put more under her. Checked the next am...she was off the nest, but eggs were warm. I put her back on the nest and covered the opening w/ a towel. Checked her again at noon, she was not on the eggs but standing over them and eggs were cold. We've moved the eggs to the incubator and not sure how many will survive. Temperatures are near 40's. Candled eggs - at least one is moving. Fingers crossed. Hen went back to the coop w/ the other hens. Now she is sitting in one of the nesting boxes again. Today one of the hens was in the box with her...so I am sure she's sitting on another unfertilized egg. My question for those w/ way more experience at this....if any of the chicks hatch from our incubator...do I dare try putting them w/ this broody hen or better not to risk it?
