I have a hen that week before last started showing signs of going broody . So after about 8 days of her constantly staying on the nest , I put her 8 eggs under her .. Only thing is , MY last broody hen , when I would touch her , she felt EXTRA SUPER HOT temp. wise on the breast area , and this one does not seem to have that hot temperature feeling to me . DOES IT MATTER ? She seemed bound and determined to SET on these eggs tho .
