I have 4 broody hens 3 are clustered together and have been sharing 3 eggs one was the first to go broody so she got the brooder box and has hatched out 4 babies 3 more on their way out. My question is what to do with the three sitting on an egg a piece I'm starting to worry the ones they're sitting on aren't going to hatch and if so how can I break them when it's reaching the teens at night? I have a broody breaker which is a large open wire cage on cinder blocks it's sheltered by one wall but exposed to the elements otherwise. What can i do if these eggs don't hatch I don't want those three sitting another month they've lost weight and it's not good for them in this cold. Any ideas? If I take the eggs and lock them out of all nesting boxes during the day will it break them? They've been sitting so long will they realize the eggs aren't going to hatch and get up themselves? I've never dealt with this before and so I'm at a loss.
