    I would and put her back on her original clutch of eggs, assuming they are fertile and you intend to let her hatch them.

    Quote:You're welcome. She's going to need to get off the clutch of eggs from time to time to eat and drink. Make sure she does. Then make sure she doesn't get confused and go back to the wrong clutch of eggs.
