hi all well my hen has been sitting for 9 days now..and doesnt let any of the other hens in the hen house anymore (which is causing major problems..ie the others are now laying elsewhere and i cant find where!!!) any how today she nipped off the nest for a break and so i peeked in the nest and theres some broken eggs in there. the yolk has dried to the other eggs, not much just a bit of splatterd yolkyness. should i clean the dirty eggs or will they be ok? i really want to move mum and nest out of there so the others can start using the nest boxes again. if i put her in a cage filled with straw, then tuck the eggs back under her, will she be ok? (going to bring her into the stables) then build her a little coop so she can stretchher legs in peace? im wondering if the eggs are fertile (seeing as the broken one was just yolk) can i candle them at 9 days? what should i be looking for?
