Hello, My momma has been sitting on two fake eggs and one real egg for (I think) 23 days now. It is possible but unlikely that one of my roos fertilized it before they left for the ranch. It so happens that another hen started hatching a BIG pile of eggs yesterday, I am thinking of moving a couple over to my brooding momma. Will she stop trying to hatch that real egg? I don’t want to accidentally cut a life short. I think she’ll be happy to have another round of chicks to strut around with though, and selfishly, she is much quieter when she’s brooding/mothering.
