Hi There. Here's the scoop: I put fertile eggs under a broody hen. She's been sitting on them for almost 21 days now. I'm very worried about them hatching though because another one of the hens always pushes the broody off her eggs and lays on them herself when she lays everyday. Very worried about there being chicks there instead of eggs when this happens! I don't have another place to put the broody hen. The only thing I can think of is putting the other hens outside and making them lay eggs in the bushes somewhere. Or putting them in the duck house when it's empty for the day??? They do love it in there, actually. ALSO: issue #2: The laying box where broody is sits about 3 feet off the ground. There is a ladder, and I guess she could force the chickies down it, but how will she get the chicks back up it every night? Thanks for your quick advice!
