Here's my situation: I would like for my hens to hatch eggs for me to replace some I lost to a fox recently. I have 2 hens that are broody. When they became broody, they layed 1 egg and would not get off of it. The problem is they both quit laying after 1 egg. I have read about hens laying a clutch of eggs before beginning to incubate them. Why won't my hens lay more than 1 egg? It has been 7 days since they layed the 1 egg. I know I can put other eggs under them, but I want to understand more about this laying a clutch of eggs thing.
