My 1 yr old Jersey Giant for the last 2 days decided that she was not going to get off of the eggs. I have 8 hens, producing 8 eggs/day. The first day, she allowed me to go underneath her and retrieve our eggs, not happy, but she did it. Now yesterday, she was not budging, so i left all of the eggs she had underneath her and let her be. She sat in the nest all day, through evening and never come out of the coop. This morning she came out and one of my golden buffs sat on the eggs, then Jersey Giant went back in and sat. It appears that none of my other hens laid eggs today. I'm guessing that my Jersey Giant is broody and wants to hatch these eggs. If she is successful, how long does it take naturally for the egg to hatch via the old fashion way with sitting on them? Is there anything that I should do differently (move this hen and these eggs to separate facility?). I have 2 very sweet roosters with my 8 hens, a wonderful flock, all get along fabulously. Looking for any advise......should I toss yesterday's eggs or try to let nature take its course?
