    I hope not! Ideal was being difficult. I ordered 3 weeks ago... I just got eggs, and not from them. I am putting 3 eggs under her tommorow, and 3 in my incubator. Will she sit on them? Or will she quit?

    I have read about hens staying broody for five weeks, but that is as long as I know of.
