I had a few chickens a while ago, but when I did, I only had hens and I never tried to hatch eggs. But, I'm about to finally get some of my favorite feathered friends once more. My breed of choice is/was silkies, so broodiness obviously wouldn't be a problem, heh. But, I was wondering... If I got some fertilized eggs while a hen of mine was broody, could I introduce these eggs to her and have her hatch them (reliably)? If so, how would I go about doing so? How many eggs would I want to introduce? And all of that jazz, just lookiong for some general advice xD. Thanks!
