Hi. everyone I am in day 6. I have 6 mix breed full sized eggs under 1 bantam and 3 (2 bantam 1 full size) under another. The one that has 6 is in a more enclosed nest. The one with 3 out in the open on the floor of the coop. Thats why one has more. So a few questions: 1. Can I candle the eggs too much before day 18? 2. My mama's don't bite, but growl and fluff up when I or another hen come near. Normal? 3. I am feeding them Purina Flock raiser (or so I think since I never see them move.) Do they need a special feed? 4. If I were to put ordered eggs under them after they have been broody for a while will they automatically stop beeing broody after 25 days or continue until all eggs are hatched? 5. Are there any treats I cannot feed a broody hen thats ok for others? 6. Any special instructions that a newby wouldn't know Thx in advance everyone!
