Hi All, this is actually my first post thought I have been reading threads for several months. What I have going on now is a whole new world to me. I haven't ever hatched, I just started by purchasing 3 hens late last August. 3 are now 5 total and one is a bantam Rhode Island Red (Brownie) who has been broody more often than not. About 2 weeks ago she went broody again so this time I asked around and got some fertile eggs from a friend. I got 6 eggs- 2 ameraucana and 4 splash maran / ameraucana mix. So yes, these are 6 full size eggs under a bantam RIR. She can keep all 6 covered just fine and has been sitting tight for 11 days now only to get up in the morning to eat and do her business. Well the last 2 or 3 days I go out to check on her and she has rolled out of the nest 1 or 2 eggs each time and is not sitting on them. I don't know how long they have been out from under her but I quickly shove them back under her. I have the eggs numbered and it isn't the same egg everytime. The temps here have been chilly and sometimes the kicked out eggs are still warm to the touch but today they were pretty cold to the touch. Is she killing them by doing this? I can only assume she is and I am wondering if I should keep shoving them back under her or should I just accept defeat and remove 1 or 2 so she has the room she apparently thinks she needs? Any other advice on broodys raising chicks is also welcome as this is my first time. I read through some of the broody thread but it is so long I gave up trying to find any info about this. Thanks for your responses.
