Hoping you knowledgeable people may have some advice for me, but I realise you may think I'm a lost cause - had been looking out for a particular breed of hen for a while, then I found someone who had eggs. Was invited along, she fetched the eggs, didn't want anything for them, then explained they 'may' have been under a broody hen, that they could be anything from 5 days to newly laid, and 'some' should be the breed I was after. I know, I should have said no, but I was too timid. So now I have a problem, as from candling them I can see they must indeed have been under a broody hen as they are at different stages including a couple of eggs with wriggling embryos. I wish I'd had the courage to walk away, because I don't know how to deal with the problem I now have on my hands. Trouble is that I'm not good at standing up for myself! Thank you in advance.
