I got a big ole' Buff Orp that went broody, Im in texas and the temps stay pretty warm so I let her go with 7 eggs. Ive been candling and Im not to impressed in what Im seeing. I'm hoping that at least one or two will hatch, but Im not seeing real good sign. eggs are due to hatch the 16th. I have run out off chicken in the freezer so I ordered 12 Red Rangers. They're coming in the 26th. Im hoping I can sneak these birds under her at night. If the eggs are all duds I'll pull the eggs and replace them with the chicks. She'll just have to sit 10 more days. If a couple hatch, I'll have to slip them in with a couple 10 day old chicks. Anyone here have experience doing this? If so. your remarks are welcomed.
