    I have a jungle fowl that has gone broody. I have them in the pen with my standard chinkens. How many eggs do yall suppose she could sit on to have any success of hatching out? i want her to sit on my easters eggs to hatch them out.

    If you have the option, keep any broody hen away from balance of a contained flock so she can do her job with minimal disturbance. A real red jungle fowl can consistently incubate a good 10 standard size eggs if nest properly constructed.
