I had eggs in the incubator and they are due to hatch in the next 24 hours. I have a broody since the day before yesterday. She sat now in the nest the last 48 hours. I want to put those hatching eggs under her but I am not sure if this will work. At a previous occasion I did take eggs that was in the incubator for a week and let the broody take over from the incubator for the last 2 weeks but I am not sure this time as she sat only 48 hours and the hatch is due in the next 24 hours. If breed is of any importance- the hen is a Brahma hen and I wouldn't have tried it if it wasn't she- Spikkels. Spikkels will take all chicks if more than one hen has chicks at the same time. She's a real Motherhen. She is also just about broody every 2-3 months. Any opinions on this? Any body with experience and how successful was it?
