Two of my BO hens have gone broody this spring/summer. With the first, she sat on eight eggs from the other hens x mutt rooster. She seemed to do a good job, but only two chicks hatched. In the meantime, the second hen went broody, and I could. not. break. her. She'd been broody for weeks, and I didn't want to give her more of "our" eggs to sit on, in case none of them hatched, and then she stayed broody. So the neighbors brought over nine guinea eggs for her to sit on -- they stuck the eggs under her. That was three weeks ago, so I was expecting them to hatch next weekend. During one of her tea breaks last week (the only time I'd seen her off the nest), I peeked at the eggs, and I could have sworn at least one was a chicken egg. (Maybe a banty? Smaller than my BO eggs, bigger than the guineas.) And now, 21 days after my neighbors brought the eggs over, two chicks have hatched. I'm pretty sure the other eggs ARE guinea eggs, though! Since I have a heat lamp but don't have an incubator, I've taken the two chicks and will raise them inside. Have I done the right thing? I'm assuming the hen would leave the nest if I left the chicks with her, and the guinea eggs still have almost a week until 28 days are over. Do you think she'll just keep sitting now that the chicks are gone?
