    Hello! I have a first time broody hen. The gen switches nests everyday but doesn't take her eggs with her. Is she doing this because something is "wrong" with the eggs? Or is she just confused? She leaves her eggs, and goes and sits on freshly laid eggs. Any Advice to get her to stay on the eggs she's been working on for ten days now?

    You should put her in a box by herself with her eggs that is what we did with our hen[​IMG][​IMG]
