    My mille fleur went broody and I decided to let her sit on a clutch of eggs. It wasn't really a huge deal until our rooster was killed by a neighbors dogs and we were so glad we would have one of his babies. The hen abandoned the eggs today they are around 19 days. Is there anything I can do for them?? Please leave advice

    The ideal thing would be to get them into an incubator so they can hatch. If you don't have one you could fashion a box and lamp up to to try and get the eggs at a decent temp and humidity.
    The search bar above is your best option as there are so many threads and articles on hatching like this.

    There are also some good articles on making a simple incubator if you have the parts. Good luck :fl
