    When one of my chooks went broody, I put 12 eggs under her.

    2k down the road, someone was selling eggs for $3.50, so I managed to fresh ones from thier coup.

    Put them under the broody hen and viola....

    One is quite indignified in the top left, just hatching, and the right egg is pipping.

    When I got home all 7 were here, all dried up.
