    She was sitting on 2 eggs wehen i went in to the coop around 6.. (she llays at like 11 am so she wasnt laying) But the eggs aren't fertalized. So i picked herup with a towel and took the eggs. Now i feel like maybe i should have bought some fertalized eggs so give her. What do i do? Do you think she'll still be broody?

    Wait and see if she is on the nest when everyone else is roosting. If she stays on the nest for two days then I would give her fertile eggs [​IMG]
