I have some broodies down there that I'm trying to break. I'm not getting many eggs at all from my hens. They are sitting on eggs now but I'd like to start removing the eggs just laid. It's very hot outside and I can't go check every half an hour for eggs. How long can an egg sit under a broody before it starts the incubation process? I plan on saving the eggs for a few days and incubating them all together and I don't want broodies right now (I'm going to wait til they hatch the eggs they are sitting on first, I have them marked) I don't want to remove the egg if its too late and then won't hatch because it already started to incubate. Any help???
