    Hello I just started raising chickens 2 months ago. So I got one hen on broody but the problem is that I mixed the eggs, 3 eggs are going to hatch on the 26 March n 7 eggs on 5 April. What can I do to get all eggs hatched. I dnt even have an incubator.

    Thats a pretty big gap between hatch dates :/

    You could pull the first 3 chicks as they hatch and :fl and hope she's stays on the remaining 7. I don't really think there's much else you could do in this situation, except perhaps consider purchasing an incubator for these types of emergencies.

    Good luck.
