    Hello Folks,
    Some of you may have read on the raising chicks threads that a snake just ate two newly hatched chicks. My question is... If I allow the hens to have more eggs, will they sit on them for another twenty one days? I want to make my hens happy but I don't know what to do. They are still sitting on the nest.
    Thanks,
    Chuck
