    My RIR hen has 14 eggs in her nest now and was wondering if she will ever sit on and hatch them? I would love to have more chickens as her and the rooster are our only 2 chickens currently. Anyone know?

    They usually go broody on their own then you add the eggs. Its not common for that breed tho.
