Hey there! I feel so bad for my hen, I just kicked her off of eggs that she has been brooding on. She started sitting on them on Monday, so today is the 3rd day. I didn't kick her off sooner, because I was/am so confused as to what to do. I didn't know if I should let her have them, not even knowing how many of "thems" were under her. I read an in depth article on here that explains the process, and I think I decided that I am way too green and nervous to let this play out. I have 9 hens and 1 rooster. I was imagining that mom would do everything, and when they are born, they can follow her around with the rest of the flock. I learned this is not the case. Do I need to throw these eggs out.. 3 days of her sitting on them, and 100 degrees outside. Next question, would tomorrow morning be too late to put a couple back under her if I change my mind tonight by doing more research?
