Hi, not sure if this goes here or in the chicken behaviors one, but anyway, Our hens are broody for about two weeks, and then they get off their eggs and never get back on. We've had to throw away two sets half-formed chickens, and its happening with the third. These are still warm so if I can save them, I want to, but I don't have an incubator. All we really have is a shoe box, lamp and cotton balls. The eggs are still in the nest for now, hoping she'll get back on them, but I don't think she will. She got off this morning for food and water and I felt the eggs to make sure she was still sitting on them and they were still warm. I went down there just now, which is about two hours later and she still wasn't on the eggs. Another chook was, but she has now got off, I don't think she's broody. What should I do? And how do I fix the problem of them leaving their eggs after two-ish weeks?
