    How long should I let her set before I put real eggs under her?
    She has been on the nest for a little over 24 hours.

    She is older than the last youngin that tired and then quit on day 21.....So maybe she will do a bit better. [​IMG]

    I require two consecutive nights on the nest before they deserve eggs.
