I found a nest of 10 eggs that my Rouen hen had hidden on Saturday. Sure enough, today she had moved her nest into a wet corner of the duck pen and now has 12 eggs. Tonight I took a candler out to check on the eggs and they were incredibly cold. Not sure how good of a broody hen she is going to be. When candling, I couldn't see much development but she is with a drake so I am assuming they are fertile. I want to incubate her eggs but I have a few questions. She is crested so I know a percentage of the eggs are not viable/will not make it. How long will she continue to lay? Should I go ahead and take the 12 and collect them as she lays them- I'd like to incubate them all at once. Are most of the eggs going to be a loss with the cold weather & the time before the incubation period? Thanks!
