    I have no idea.
    why mecxican bantam hen now is sitting on her eggs, there are about 20 eggs, and i don't think that she could sit on them all, so i removed some to another box in my coop... should i let another hen inherit them?


    thanks for trying to help

    Do you have another broody hen? If you don't, then probably none of the others will step up to the plate to sit on them!
