    Ok so I have a male pekin and a female I think pekin and Indian runner mix cuz she has the marks and the stance...but anyway she's been laying eggs since December (I know eggs gone to waste)(but we just didn't know what to do with them) but anyways until like a couple days ago before we hatched some of her eggs ourselves she suddenly started staying with her eggs sitting on them all the time only coming out when we let them out in the morning which she just returns after she ate and drank a little.
    so my question: Do you think she'll hatch?

    Didn't know what to do with the eggs??? You EAT them just like a chicken egg.

    That aside, it does sound like she is broody.
