    I think i have my first broody hen. She is a RIR i bought at the auction a while back. I dont know her age but she was laying big eggs when I got her. she has been on the nest for two days. Do i start counting days from the first day she starting sitting r is it different? I have know idea so tell all you know. Thanks. she is on 4 r 5 eggs .
