    So i have a pet boxer who is wonderful at everything one problem is he steals eggs from my coop if no one is looking [​IMG]. anyways i have a blue cochen who went broody and she was just about to hatch 3 eggs of hers and my darn dog got in and ATE HER EGGS!!![​IMG] completly my bad for leaving the door open and not shuting it behind me. does anyone think that if i put other eggs under her and let her hatch new egg if it would be to stressful on her or do you think she will do fine?? i dont want to discurrage my broody chickens for thats the only way i get baby chicks.

  2. Hi! My Cochins (and some other girls) stay broody for most of spring and summer --- much longer than it would take to hatch a single clutch of eggs. I take the chicks as soon as they hatch and add new eggs every week. My broody-girls will walk off the nest when they've had enough.

    *I* would give her new eggs. Just make sure she's getting off the nest and getting plenty to eat and drink.
    Good luck!
