    Hello i have just put some fertile eggs (8) under my first time broody hen. I put them under yesterday afternoon. I have just checked and 2 were pushed out. Should i put them back under or will they be duds. Its winter where i live if it helps. TIA

    I'd put them back under her. You can always candle later and see if they developed.

    I have had chickens for 3 mo now and each are totally different breeds. My buff Orpington has gone broody so 2 days ago I decided to let her hatch 5 eggs. They consist of a silkie cross, a cuckoo maran and Idk who laid the others. So hopefully we will have babies I. 3 weeks. I love in northwest Arkansas so it won't be cold here till November so I think they will be ok. I'm excited!
