Please advise: I would like my girl to hatch a batch of chicks, and I heard that leaving the eggs with her might instigate her to go broody. But I don't want to waste the eggs... So does anyone have opinions on the chances of this working? She's a light brahma, about 8 months old, and yes, it's cold where I am, but she's laying an egg a day!! Also, yes, I am sure all the eggs I've been collecting are fertilized!
