    So i have the eggs in the incubator and one set is day 6 and the other set is at day 4 well...My Rosie decided to go broody now so should i put some under her or leave them in the incubator she was just broody a couple months ago and she would never leave the coop i had to lock her out and then all she would do is pace back in forth to get back inside she had food and water but would never leave the spot unless i picked her up and put her outside and locked the coop door so she couldnt get back in she lost so much weight and she is just now started to look like her normal self again any suggestions would be great thank you!
