We are being given some broody hens because their behavior doesn't work in the current environment. We will have them in a separate living area with nest buckets and nice space. I have a couple questions to get off to a good beginning.
- Will moving them a couple miles likely mess with their broody attitude? The present owner has been taking eggs away.
- Can I put eggs (that should be fertile) in with them right away?
- or Would it be better to let them settle in.
- Will egg fertility be influenced by age of hens and rooster? This is the third summer for the rooster and some hens, 4th for some hens
