    I have tried to break Angelika's broody behaviour but alas without success! So I am going to let her hatch out some chicks so she can get over it and start eating properly again.

    Please is ther anyone close to me who can sell me a few fertile eggs? I am in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

    Thanks.

    How do you get eggs from one house to another while maintaining the high temps they need to hatch etc ... ?

    Quote:what do you mean? the eggs dont have to be at a specific temperature before you put them under a broodie, i have hatched eggs that were in the fridge before i put them in the incubator...
