I've got my first broody hen! (Her name is Julia because she's orange - Orange Julia.) http://www.flickr.com/photos/onemotherslove/4928535950/ I noticed she didn't come back to the coop last night or this evening either. I found her nestled in a raised flower bed in the back yard where I had seen eggs deposited before. I do have a rooster and I've seen him at work, so I'm guessing that they're fertile eggs. I'd love to see if we can raise our own chicks, but as I said, this is my first, so do I need to do anything for her? She's not close to food or water, but it does seem like a pretty safe place for her to be. Any advice would be appreciated! One more specific question - If she's been sitting there for 2 days already, can I slip any more eggs under her? Maybe I can hatch some of my Easter Eggers' eggs?
