I have a broody hen that is bigger than a bantam but a little smaller than a standard hen. Well I have about 34+ fertile eggs only 6 are large eggs the rest are bantam size and I want to try to hatch all of them but I do not think 34+ will fit under her. I have a silkie that just hatched one chick and was really mad at me for separating the two. She is still acting broody but refuses to sit on any eggs. I have her nest filled with eggs from my other hens in her nest hoping she will forgive me and decide she wants to sit again. Am I just out of luck on a few eggs? I honestly did not plan on having this many eggs at one time 24 of them were suppose to be sent in two packages at different times but the person I received them from I know has a lot to do and regardless I am very thankful the person sent them to me. So any opinions? ETA: My husband does not want to buy a incubator. He wants to have our hens hatch all eggs.
