I have a hen (RIR) that sits on the eggs during the entire day then leaves to perch at night. She did this last spring and summer. After about 5-7 days the flock eats the eggs. I'm considering segregating her and trying a forced brood. I have a 3x3 cage that coons can't reach into (I NEVER say coon proof!) that I can place in my barn. Is that cage too big? Too small? Anyone with any advice? If this has been previously covered, my apologies, I found nothing in related posts.
