    My chicken has been sitting on 2 eggs for about a week. This morning my husband cleaned her house up while she was out eating. Apparently when she returned to the house she sat on out plastic egg instead of her eggs! I just returned the eggs to her but will they survive? The temp here today was in the 60's. I also removed that STUPID plastic egg!

    Quote:Wow, where are you that you are soooo lucky!?? They should be fine, if she got back on them. They might just be a day or so later on the hatch.
     
  3. Hi! You got the broody hen back sitting on the eggs? They should be fine [​IMG]
    Just making sure I read it right... your husband cleaned the chicken house? Give him a hug from me [​IMG]
