What is the appropriate number of eggs to hatch under a broody hen ?
It depends on how big your hen is and what type of eggs your putting under them.
But could you give some parameters, or some examples of pushing the limits or whatever?
8-10 would be NO PROBLEM for a LF Buff Orpington hen...perhaps more.
I have a smaller Gamehen that I would expect to be "overloaded" with 10 .....but perhaps NOT....?
just some "off-the-wall" guesses.
Try what you think. Go with that. See what comes up and out.
