I have this hen who has been setting on her eggs for months, and they just won't hatch! They are fertile, but she kicks them out about a week too soon to set on the other girls fresh eggs, so they never hatch. What should I do with her?
I'd get her some day old babies from some place and slip them under her at night. Just keep a close eye on her that she accepts them. I've never had a problem doing this but I'm reading an awful lot of posts on here lately about hens killing their babies (both their own and/or foster chicks)!
