I have an EE hen that went broody on 7 eggs about three weeks ago. My roo is a Splash Ameraucana and the eggs are from other EEs, a black Australorp, and maybe some BR hens. I have been super busy with work and my hours at home haven't coordinated well with doing anything about relocating the hen. I have been unsure about where to put her while she's sitting on the eggs, so I just didn't do anything at all. She's been faithful to stay on the eggs. Occasionally, I will find her taking a dust bath in the middle of the day, so I know she's getting up to eat, etc. Yesterday, I found three more eggs in her nest with her. Dummy me didn't mark the eggs she was sitting on, so now i have no idea which ones are the ones she's been incubating. Grrrr. Today, I found one of my BR hens in the nest with her, so I'm sure she laid a few eggs there. I guess I'll just take the ones out that don't hatch. I finally figured that I'll put her in a huge dog crate I have to let her hatch the chicks out. Now, I have to move her to the crate. What's the best way to do that? Should I wait until the chicks hatch and then move them? Should I pick up the eggs and transfer them and her to a washtub nesting box I'll put in the crate? what do you think?
