Ok, I have a hen that went broody today and I have eggs in a bator that are due in 11 days. I was wondering if I can put some of those eggs under her to finish. That way she can raise them and I won't have to. Has anyone ever done this with eggs that have less than 2 weeks to go? Did she accept the babies? I would like to put them under her tonite if it will be accepted by her. She is an Old English game and has a sister that is broody right now also and is due to hatch on March 20th, she has sat for the whole time on hers.

Thanks for any input in advance

Now its a waiting game

i would think so. i have heard of it being done before although i never have had a hen go broody
. i have one that i am suspecting though. but i would say if you are sure she has gone broody you can do it.
