Hi There, I had a broody hen so one week in I got her some fertilized eggs to sit on and she did so faithfully for 2 weeks and then suddenly gave up one night when she got very wet. I brought her and the eggs in to get warm but she wasn't going to sit anymore. I pulled out the incubator and the eggs 1 week later are starting to hatch. I'd really like to have her raise them but I'm not sure if they can be put back together after she stopped sitting on them. She's not expecting to hatch eggs right now, would she accept a chick if I slipped it under her at night? Can it be done? Has it been done? I brought her inside again and tried two of her eggs under her they moved and she freaked out! She's now sitting on a few different room temp mostly because I shoved them under her. Any input is most welcome! Thank you! Christine, and 10 peeping eggs and Petunia.
