In the Brooder
- Feb 14, 2010
I have six eggs in my nestbox. We think one of our hens may be broody but not sure. The girls layed 2 eggs yesterday and 4 today. I have a few questions. 1) When would we know if our hen is broody and planning on hatching these eggs? 2) How long can the eggs sit in the nest before we take them and hatch them ourselves? 3) If we remove the eggs and put them in an incubator would they have the same hatch day or would the days be based on when they were layed?
