Ok, so I'm not new to BYC, been here for a year. BUT, I have my first broody hen and I've got some questions. I'm very excited to have a broody. First: She started sitting about a week ago. Of course, I don't have a Roo (well, he got here yesterday but he's only 2 days old!) So, she's been sitting on .... nothing! No eggs under her. I thought she had eggs under her but when she got up there weren't any. She did move over to a nest a couple of days ago that had five eggs laid by my other hens but then (after I took those eggs, she moved back to her 'favorite' nest box and is still sitting tight). corancher (a wonderful BYCer) is sending me some fertile eggs. I think they will get here tomorrow or not till Monday. How do I put the eggs under her (my broody - not corancher)? Should I just get them under her as soon as I bring them home? OR, should I wait until night and slip them under her?
