I have three broody hens sitting on eggs of questionable fertility for several reasons having to do with a rooster's being sick and other complications. I know for certain that one of the hens is eating her eggs; there only half as many as what she started with. Is it possible she knows they were not going to hatch and just wanted to remove them permanently. One of the other two hens pushed some of her eggs out for me to remove. BTW, these are eggs that I did not toss for two weeks during/after the weeks of my hens' being treated to prevent lung infection. I don't know whether to place her remaining eggs under the other two hens or wait the remaining ten days to see how it goes. Do you think she will continue eating her eggs once she is no longer broody.
