I have a broody Leghorn bantam at the moment, under whom I would like to set some eggs. But I've never incubated 'naturally' before (I have an incubator), and the only fertile eggs I have at the moment, however, are regular-sized ones - the mothers are a mix of Sussex cross, Ancona, ISA Brown, and one full-sized Leghorn. While I don't doubt that the broody bantam CAN incubate these eggs, I'm not sure how many I should put under her. At the moment she's quite happily sitting on six golf balls. I don't want to give her too many eggs in case she can't keep them warm enough. I was planning on putting six eggs under her, but if I can put more than that in, I'll do it (I have a surplus of fertile eggs at the moment, pending the purchase of a second incubator). Does anyone have any reccommendations of a good amount of eggs to put in? from Rachel.
