    So i have a hen out in the coop who is broody she has four eggs under her i have 30+ in the incubator that is due next friday so my question is should i take the eggs from her and then replace them with some of the others before i do my lock down or just leave things as they are she has never had chicks before but when she goes broody she goes a little nuts and never leaves the coop unless i force her to so this is the first time i have done the incubator thing and the first time i let Rosie keep some of her eggs i think 3 of the 4 she has are fertile so far and i have 9 of hers in the incubator that are doing great so far!!
