So my momma hen has been on her nest for an extra week from the time the first chick hatched. 6 more have hatched, mostly one each day for the last week. There are still 12 eggs in the nest. ( Our other hens laid new eggs in the nest for at least a week after she first began to sit). She really doesn't like the new chicks that hatch and has pecked at a few, which we have taken and put in a brooder. I keep thinking she will leave the nest soon, but until she does, I don't want to mess with the eggs. We have the incubator set up and ready when/if she does. Should I just let her keep sitting or take the eggs to the incubator now? I check on her often because I don't want her to hurt any of her chicks. Has anyone out there ever experienced anything like this?
