    Can I keep the egg my bantam just laid warm until she goes broody? My mum really wants to let a hen hatch it but we only have gotten two eggs so far and we ate the first one. What should I do? Can I force a hem to go broody? (we don't have an incubator or a broody hen)

    Can't force a hen to go broody. If you want to hatch her fertilized eggs inch at or or wait until she might go broody. There are threads on here on how to make a incubator from scratch fyi
