    My "diva" is broody [​IMG] [​IMG]


    I am so happy.... Here is my dilema. The eggs she is stealing are not fertile. I do have some blue orp eggs in the bator from jimmy47. The eggs are on day 7 So how many should I give her? First time broody for this hen who is almost 12 months old.

    Edited to add.. I need the eggs she is stealing lol.

    She is beatiful. I wouldn't give her any eggs. Let her lay on empty ones and put the chickens under her when they are born, in a closed area with a heating lamp just in case. That way she is rewarded for laying but you have full controle of the hatch - and the chickens have a mama.
