we are trying to sell the house and my hen has been broody for almost a week and I have gathered the real eggs out from under her, because I was trying to convince my parents to try and get some different eggs locally. but my dad has said no because it is not the right time to hatch eggs and that we have no more room here for chickens ( just his excuse we could easily fit 2-3 more hens ). so tomorrow I will conveniently be too busy working on my research paper that I will forget to gather the two eggs we will get tomorrow. . and then to try and break her I will just give her some food and water and separate her and the nest from the others, but some how I will miss two real eggs because there are so many fake ones under her. oops well I had no idea that I had forgotten them but I guess I will just have to get that unopened bag of chick starter from upstairs. I mean it is a simple mistake any broody first timer could make right.
