    My hen scratches out nesting material and sits on her eggs on the bare bottom of the brooder box. And her eggs are cracking and breaking.....

    This morning I checked her (she is due to hatch tomorrow) and one egg had busted and the yoked dried and glued another egg to her skin...so now I think I've lost that egg too.....[​IMG]

    ....any advice????
