My buff went broody about a month ago. I was surprised when she was up one day during the incubation process to find that there were 12 eggs there. Two days later I saw her out again so I went and checked on her and the eggs to my surprise there were 2 more added to the pile. I k ow she was not stealing them because of the nest box cover I had over her. So I left it as it was and then the next day noticed that there was one of my other hens laying her eggs in there with her. So now I knew why she had so many eggs. My problem is, hatch day was Sunday up until last night. There was one dead baby chick that didn't make it out of the egg and mama got off the eggs and moved her and the babies to another box. I took the rest of the eggs that she was done with candled them and some are very dark inside and others are just in the first week or two of growth. I hope that me putting them in the incubator to finish the process that they make it. If anyone has advice please send it my way. Thank you.
