    I have a broody sex link who is sitting on 10 eggs, she has been on them for 1 week today. Is this to many for her? She covers them well, but what about when they hatch (assuming they all do), will 10 babies be to many for her?

    As long as she can cover all the eggs she should be fine. Hope the all hatch. [​IMG]
