i've an asil/shamo hen. she laid her first ten eggs and start sitting on them. but i feel she is not incubating properly because she sitting on them then leave the nest for an hour then again start incubating them and after 4/5 hours again leave nest for an hour. i don't know what's going on? and one thing she is incubating first time. thx

First, often, the first time that a hen tries to incubate eggs, she fails.

Second, sometimes, even a good hen will sit like that for the first two or three days, but then settle down properly.

You will just have to wait for a few days and see how she does.

If she keeps jumping off the nest after a week, i don't think there would be any hope for the eggs.
