We have a young hen--approx 8 months old Buff Orp. she has shown signs of broodiness a time or 2, but removed herself from the nest after a few hours. Last night my dd had to take an egg from under her. Just checked eggs this afternoon--and she is still there, sitting on a wooden egg...I took the egg out. But then had a thought--if I order hatching eggs quickly-would there be a good chance of being able to have her hatch them? My dd wants to try to show purebred Amauracanas (yes I know I spelled it wrong!!) and maybe this is a good way to go. We have no idea what we are doing regarding hatching, so looking for opinions of those with experience. We were planning to get more chicks soon to raise over the winter anyway...so one way or another we'd be getting chicks. Thanks!
