    The Broody Cochin hen keeps "stealing" the other eggs the other hens lay in the nesting area and pulling them under her. She already has 10 fertile eggs (6 standard and 4 bantam) but she wants them all!

    Is it safe for me to quickly remove her and take away the new eggs?

    Sure, take out the new eggs. You've marked the ones you want her to keep, right? (You wouldn't want to crack one of those into your breakfast frying pan)[​IMG]
