Hi! I have my very first broody hen! And I am very excited! But in Hope's of making one of my hens broody, I let a few of my ducks accumulate a good number of eggs (I dont use them, and they are not fertilized because I dont have a drake) because I read that if you allow there to be enough eggs , it could make them go broody. Well the problem is that I now have a broody mama on 15 unfertilized duck eggs😂 how should I go about getting chicken eggs under her? Should I do it at night?

Also mark the eggs she's incubating, other chickens will go in her nest when she goes out to eat and drink. If you don't mark them your chicken will be on eggs of all stages of incubation, and it's irritating... believe me. :rolleyes:
