Hey, I'm new to allowing my hen to sit and hopefully hatch some chicks. I know she'll instinctively know what to do but I'm a bit concerned because I have other hens still going back there and laying their eggs. I've tried everything to keep them out to no avail so she's sitting on about 30 of them. I've taken many out and candled for viability, and most of these are. I've taken out the nonviable ones, of course. My question is how many should I leave there for her? She's actually able to cover them all. However, some of them are overlapping. I would like to make sure she's able to turn them, etc. I've even thought about removing all the eggs and putting them in a container for her but am assuming that would stress her out so feel like the best thing to do would be to leave them where they are. When the chicks do hatch can I assume she'll keep them all warm or should I remove them from her and put them in a container under a heat lamp. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
