I'm sorry if this is in the wrong area, I wan't sure if it should be in Brooding and incubating, but the posts there seem to all be about brooding with incubators. Anyway, my question is, how many eggs can a standard size hen handle? Is a dozen too many? What about bantam or heavy breeds? If I let her hatch them, then I take some or all of them away to hand raise, will she be depressed?
