Hi, I have an old English Game hen (Trudie) who I've had for a few months. the pair were fully grown when I got them and they had a chick. the chick has since been removed from the hen and she now has 8 eggs in the nest. she usually roosts with the rooster (Jantjie), but for the past 3 nights has been sleeping on the eggs in the nest. During the day, she lays on the eggs for about a half an hour, and then goes foraging. after another half hour, she returns to the nest. she's on and off the nest all day? My cochins stay put when they are brooding? will the eggs hatch? The weather has been very hot at the moment, could that be the reason or is she a bad mom? PLS help guys!
