Hello all! I'm new to this site and have read a lot of helpful info. on here! I've had a dear little hen (RIR) that has been determined to hatch some eggs. The only problem is, my eggs aren't fertile so I got some from my mom who has a rooster per 4 hens, so after Cleo (my broody hen) tried to sit on my fresh eggs for about a week (I took them out from under her every day), I stuck these "fertile" eggs under her and just like any good mother, she sat there for close to 4 weeks and turns out not a single egg was even fertile (talk about frustrating)!! So, I took all of them out from under her last night (I felt SO bad because she's been sitting up there so long and ended up with nothing!) and today when I went out, where is she but on a nest of today's fresh eggs! So, I'm wondering, if she'll get over it within the next day or so--I would think she would be getting tired sitting there! Or...do I have time to collect some more "fertile" eggs from my aunt and put them under for yet another 3 weeks?? Have any of you had a similar experience or can you tell me how long to expect her to be broody yet?
