I have two broody hens with 11 eggs between them, they are pretty far along, but the are in high nesting boxes in the coop with all the other chickens and a rooster. Should we take the eggs into a incubator now or let them finish them out? First time hatchers here. Im afraid if they hatch when we are gone they will fall or be killed by other hens - help us please, little girl hearts at sake here.. we already lost 2 eggs to crushing I think
Thanks:(

I would wait until evening, then very quietly move the hens and nests into a safe, quiet area with food and water available.

And if they are sitting together on 11 eggs, I would separate them and the eggs into 2 different places.
