    I got some eggs in the mail today and because, of when I got them I couldn't give them to my broody until 9:00. Okay, my concern is sense was starting to get dark when I put her in with the eggs I am scared she might not sit on them until the morning. If she doesn't sit on them until the morning will this hurt them? What should I do? Should i leave her alone or should I go down and bug her and try to make sure she sits on them tonight????

    is she brody? i would put them under her while she is sleeping. remember, hens get off the eggs to eat & drink. if she is brody she will do her job. if you just stick them under & she isn't brody she will bail & not sit on them
    Best of luck
