    This may seem obvious but worth an ask. Can a full size cochin sit on 12 serama eggs and not break/damage them? She is incredibly broody and looking for a purpose! LOL! I'm not sure I want to brave the incubator with all the $ I just spent on eggs. Any suggestions or testimonials? Thanks!

    Great, do I need to do something special to accomodate for the size difference? Thanks for the reply!

    Mama hen will arrange all the eggs carefully under herself, even if there is a large size discrepancy. She will not break them.


    Good Luck.
