    Hi everyone,

    I have a broody hen that is sitting on two eggs for about a week. At first my husband and I thought that our rooster wasn't big enough to fertilize the eggs, so we ordered a variety of polish eggs for her to sit on. (which is coming in 2 days) Well last night we cracked open one of eggs that was laid yesterday only to find out that it is fertile. I hate to throw out the two she is sitting on, but I want her to hatch the polish chicks. My question is can we move the two to an incubator, even though she has been sitting on them already?
