well i discovered a hen had set up a nest in the woods and i figure it is day 10, ......i fretted over what to do - lots of predators here and decided that it was unlikely she would survive another 10 days out there without being food for someone, so i went out an hour before dawn and moved her AND the 25 eggs under her!!!! so first off she has not sat on the eggs since i moved her, i put them all in a dog crate in a quiet dark room, she is sitting in the far back of the crate and the eggs in the middle, has not been on them all day long. so i assume they are now going to die. i also suspect it was just too late to move her successfully, but did not find her til a couple days ago and then could not decide what was best to do. it is ok that the eggs wont make it, i am not trying to get more chicks, but i feel horrible for her. she is not moving at all not eating etc. should i put her in the coop tonight with the others? my other question is if they are sitting on a clutch of eggs but only lay an egg every day or 2, then how do they hatch all the chickens in a couple of days??
