I have 2 hens that are broody right now and I have a few questions about them. The first hen is Momma hen. She is a year old and refused to break so I gave in a gave her 4 LF eggs to sit on. The second hen is the only baby from her first hatch to wants to sit. I know Big Momma will hatch the eggs out and take good care of the babies but I am worried about Little Momma. Her sisters tried but lost interest within a day so I didn't give Little Momma any real eggs to sit on, she has be sitting on our fake nest box egg. Now that she is an avid and determined sitter I'm still afraid to give her any eggs and she is a week behind Big Momma now and in the next box. To add to it all we really don't want any more chicks or chickens right now that is why Big only got 4 eggs. Would it be ok to take 2 of the eggs from Big and give them to Little? Could I give them back to Big if Little doesn't do a good job with chicks? Would Big or Little kill each others chicks? Will they try to raise all the chicks together? Should I just give Little a couple of eggs of her own? i'm not sure what the best course of action is and just need a bit of help figuring the business of broody. Thanks for the help!!!
