Our Salmon Favarole "Gloria" is very broody. We would like to let her do her thing on about 5 eggs and let them hatch themselves. Has anyone done this? We have a very small flock; 2 black giants, (one is the rooster) an aracana, NH red, and a barred rock. I was thinking we could mark the eggs to let her keep somehow, but I don't want the ink to get into the egg itself. Could Gloria take care of the chicks once they hatch? Also, should we give her a different brooding spot? How do we get the other chickens to lay their eggs elsewhere? Or can we just get the unmarked eggs out from under her? Any advice you have would be great!
