Hi Everyone, I am new to this forum and so far, I love it!!! So many nice people here and it makes me feel very welcomed... Just something I want to ask in this particular thread is...how long are eggs good for incubation after they are laid on the nest and just sits there? I had people telling me it would last 30 days if in the right weather condition but I can't be too sure. The hen had laid 9 eggs already and still havn't gone broody yet. She's small too!!! Under 1.5 lbs (Bantam Phoenix)... I took a few shots of her and her eggs and posted on my website @ www.animalsinthecity.webs.com What promotes "Broodyness"?
