Freshly Laid Egg

Freshly Laid Egg (1/19)



  1. Thanks Dogmother! I've had the same advice on another forum, so I'll go with that. Tiny is the broodiest chicken we've ever had and it's usually very hard to break her trance. I allowed her to hatch some eggs last year and she was the perfect mother, so hopefully she'll behave!
  2. There is vegetarian suet - would that work? Atora make it and I use it for dumplings.
  3. I have 3 dutch bantam eggs in the incubator due to start hatching tomorrow and a dutch bantam hen has gone broody today! Common sense suggests that it's far too late to put them under her, but I don't know what cues she uses to switch from sitting to chick care - does it have to be a certain amount of time, or would hatching sounds be enough? She has been a very good mother in the past.
