    my first time broody has cracked ALL the eggs I gave her. I don't have a incubater so a broody hen is my only option. Can I train her NOT to crack her eggs? They alway's crack near the end of incubation.

    I don't raise my own, but I do have a chicken that cracks eggs. I would try a different broody. Sometimes it's a hard habit to get them to break.

    I agree, try a different broody.
