I thought it was strange when my broody hen would get off the two eggs that we let her have, another hen would sit on the eggs until the other hen came back and get off the eggs. Now I finally had a look at the nest when they were off it and the other hen has been laying eggs, 5 so far. What happens when the two eggs hatch and there is still 5 more eggs laid on different days? I can't tell which are the original eggs or I would have taken the others.
