Hi i am a new member here and I have a question ... One of my rhode island red hens started laying .. She laid the first egg and after 2 weeks she laid another one and 2 days later she laid another one and they were all double yolks the first egg was eaten And when she laid the second one we decided to buy an incubator to hatch it then she laid the third egg . now we have both eggs in the incubator they are fertile and we can see the embryos My question is how to successfully hatch the eggs ??? I read that they won't be able to hatch on their own ?? What do you suggest ??? the hen got sick after laying the third egg and we think she was egg bound she kept pushing and she was in pain but she was eating normally. Her vent was really red so we applied olive oil but that didn't help we gave her a warm bath that didn't help too and we injected olive oil into her vent to help her pass the egg and we gave her medicine in the water two days later she was getting worse so I gave her more medicine and then next day we found a very soft shelled egg and the hen was healthy again !! We think that she laid that soft egg We just hope she can lay more double yolks without problems ..
