so, my hen went broody for the second time this year. was broody in March as well. I moved her tonite to seperate quarters, I had some eggs collected for her, so that they all hatched the same time. when I picked her up, she was on 6 eggs. I asked my daughter if she wanted to see what an egg looked like at two days , almost three in development. so we cracked one open. My 8 year old daughter asked what that was moving. EEEK, do they really have a heartbeat at that stage??? never again, will we do this. my daughter is mortified. I feel terrible.
