In the Brooder
- Jun 21, 2009
we have two hens and recently determined we had 7.....yes 7 roos. our females are great layers. not a clue as to what kind of chickens they are but they lay about an egg a day. we were out of town for the weekend and our friends forgot to collect the eggs and our one female was very broody. since we had recently discovered we had roos and there was a possibility of hatching some chicks we left her alone with her eggs. the other female continued to lay in the nest with her and now we have two broody hens and a lot of eggs. we have since removed 6 roos. its been about 3 weeks now. what do we do? we tried to candle the eggs but they are so dense i cant see anything. my females wont come out of the coop. i dont want to let this continue if they're not fertile. please help! email me with any advice or links! i'd greatly appreciate any help.
