*******I don't think I did this right. The update is the last post.******** Ok, so my hen has been broody for a little over a week. I have posted ads looking for fertile eggs, as I lost my dear sweet rooster a few months ago. I got several responses before I was able to delete my ad. I got one response with regular fertile chicken eggs that is what I wanted, then one response with a woman whose ducks won't sit on her eggs and really wants my hen to foster her eggs (she will want her ducklings back when hatched) , then one woman who lost her whole flock to predators last week and has fertile eggs in the fridge. She wants our girl to foster and then split the chicks. So here is the question. I want to do it all! How many eggs can my lovely lady sit on at one time? Couls she do 4 of each? I think duck eggs need to go in a couple of days prior to the chicken eggs? Can refrigerated eggs be hatched? Is this overly ambitious for a first timer? I figure momma hen will do it right, even if I don't know what I am doing...is that naive? Thanks for any answers. I guess I need to make a decision soon.
