Hi all, I have a hen that started laying about 3 weeks ago. Out in the coop I have a white silkie roo and 8 hen, 2 frizzle, 1 American game and the rest are mixes. Since Holly is indoors, and laying, and living in a extra large dog kennel, my g/f suggested that I maybe grab some eggs from the coop and place under Holly and see what I get for chicks. Question: If I start to gets eggs under Holly (right now I get 5-6 eggs a day from the coop) should I just place the normal amount from the coop or should I do this for a couple of days?? Leaving the eggs in with Holly, will she automatically set on them? How long does it take for a hen to hatch out chicks, never don this before. Holly is staying indoors now until next spring anyways. Any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated!!!
