I am wondering, how many eggs can a broody hen handle? I have a standard size Americauna. She is broody and I just got some peafowl eggs in the mail yesterday. She is setting on some eggs I would like to take those from her and put the peafowl eggs under her. I have 5 of them!!!!! The wonderful man that I brought them from sent me 5 guinea eggs and 7 pheasant eggs!!! (This man is the worlds best seller ever) So I just want to know can my broody handle all of the eggs? 5 peafowl 5 guinea 7 pheasant. 17 eggs!!!!! I know that they can take a lot of eggs but is that too many for her? Thanks so much!
