is ten eggs to much for a small broody hen to hatch?
depends how big she is ?
Bantam eggs? Could be - try to see if she completely covers them all.
Standard chicken eggs? 10 is most likely way too many for a bantam hen.
My broody's aren't banty, but they are dainty - full size egg layers. They've sat on 16 eggs, even some sticking partially out and they still hatch. They are great at fluffing themselves out.
Thanks all, I think Ill take a few out.
