Ok here's the story..."Big Mama" had gone broody...she sat on eggs for 28 days. None hatched,all rotten. Then "Ms.Dottie" went broody and so I placed 6 eggs under her and while she was sitting, "Big Mama" went broody again(I placed 4 eggs under her). During sitting,Ms.Dottie got rid of any infertile..leaving 4. Other hens tried to get in the nest to lay and well..a couple got broken. Later ,when checking on the eggs....while Ms.Dottie got up to stretch, I noticed that one was half crushed and there was a chick in side yolk was coming out and all of it's contents. So I opened it the rest of the way,knowing there was no chance of survival. The chick moved a bit, then nothing.A few days later I could smell this aweful smell...I checked the eggs..all were rotten. I had to destroy them. "Big Mama was down to 3 eggs...and then I noticed that one was smashed...over to the side of the nest was a dead chick. So she only had 2 eggs left...so I gave one to Ms. Dottie, who was still broody. So they both had 1 egg each. On day 20 I heard peeps coming from Big.Mama's nest...sure enough,her egg hatched. She now has a beautiful baby. Unfortunately,Ms.Dottie's egg didn't hatch. A few days later,I checked the egg,rotten. I tossed it. Now the problem.... Big Mama moved her chick to a pen where I kept older chicks(until adults were used to them being around). I closed the door after putting starter feed and waterer in there. Ms.Dottie ,poor thing...continuously sits next to this pen..talking to Big Mama's baby and showing the baby how to eat etc. She seems to think that that is her baby, So my question is....what should I do about it? Should I do anything? I will place more eggs under her(after I incubate them for a few days to make sure they are fertile), but she is nolonger sitting in the nest. Or should I just let her think that baby is hers...or what? Thanks for any advice.
