I have a hen that has been laying on her (and my other hen's) eggs quite a bit. She does get off of them too. I've never dealt with this before, as I've only had hens for about 6 months now (I got them as adults). Do broody hens get off the eggs? If yes, for how long? I'm trying to decide if I should collect the eggs or let her hatch them. Also, it is really hot here in Phoenix right now. Should I collect the eggs and wait until fall when it is cooler for letting a hen hatch some eggs? I just lost a hen exepectedly and I'd like to have a few more... Thanks!
