Our hens are about a year old and one is now broody (yea!) She's so sweet in her puffy don't touch me state! We're happy to have a broody hen. Our kids need to see how the whole circle works. Plus chicks are adorable. However, we have a scheduling problem. 21 days from now we'll be away. Our temporary chicken care provider is sweet, reliable but a self proclaimed "city girl". My thought is to take eggs from under her (this is her first full day in the nest box) for the next week or so, then leave 5 or 6 on a date that will push the hatching ETA until we return. Thoughts? Insights? Words of wisdom please? Will this work or simply drive her and everyone else bonkers? Thanks!
