What is the maximum number of eggs a hen will lay in a nest before she starts to sit and hatch them?
It really depends on her, sometimes 3 some times they will never go broody but usually at least from my experience about 7-10
My hen quit laying in the nest box in the coop and built a hidden nest and now has seven eggs in it. I want know if she is broodyvare not until I see her sitting in it. Was wondering if she is going to visit how many eggs it would be. I hope she goes broody if not I loose those eggs.
What breed is she, she very well could go broody
Americana she lays blue eggs. Rooster is a mixed EE breed with 5 toes on each foot that's all I know about him.
Ooooooo do you have a picture of him
8 eggs and still hoping she sit them.
10 eggs but not sitting yet. Now I am thinking she may not go broody and sit this eggs.
