I really don't want to mess with the Incubator thing right now seems like SO MUCH work and Patience is required. I was curious though will my Hens continue to lay eggs for me if I leave a few in one nest to lay on? They Free Range during the Day only, so what would happen, if they would obviously need to lay on them all day? Correct? How does this work how long would it take? Would it make them broody? from that point forward? My Daughter and I wanted to leave say 5 eggs in the nest, mark them and see if anyone wants to do the job I have 2 that I catch all the time laying on the plastic eggs ( I leave them in for encouragement) and they get upset if I remove them. So I have just left them in they have been laying for 3 months now, so I do not want to mess that up I get 5 eggs per day. Anyone???
