    Another question i have my peahen eggs in the incubator and one is due to hatch and others have weeks to go. So if i increase the humidity for one egg which is due to hatch would it affect the others ?

    I have had hens set many times but mine are interesting because they are overly broody, they will set on a single egg. I think they might know we take them so they dont lay more haha.

    One of mine was so not broody that every egg she laid was laid from her perch.
