    Hi there, thank you :) yes im having a slightly bad day! My broody brahma hen dottie has been sitting on 6 fertile eggs that I bought yesterday, since yesterday. I was advised not to move her, but this morning my other hen tried to join her in the nestbox to lay. She had kicked all but two eggs out onto the droppings tray, one of them was cracked/dented but the membrane was stil intact. I seperated her and put them straight under her-she took to sitting again straight away but they were cold to the touch. Will they be ok or should we start again?

    I'm not positive since I am a rookie in the incubation department. If you haven't already, post in the incubating and hatching thread below - someone there can advise. Good luck to you!!
