Ok, I have a Buff that went broody while we were on vacation (2weeks ago) and made a nest out in the yard. I just found her nest today by following her "egg song". She has a nice little nest with what looks like about 8 eggs. But my nice hand fed baby growles at me when I get close. Which I understand is NORMAL. So, i know I need to decide if I should move her to the coop or not. BUT. How long does she lay eggs before they start to incubate?? How long should I wait? Is egg song normal or is she still laying??? Do I need to candle them??? Or let mom do her thing and just wait a month??? 21 days right? I have NO clue when she started this. ANY time in the last 3 weeks. Soooooo frustrating. Because I am soooo excited. The babies will be Buff Orpingtons mom and Lavender Orpington Dad!!!!
