How do you keep your other hens from climbing in the nest box and adding eggs to a hens clutch? Yesterday my broody had 9 eggs and today there were 12! I don't know which are new and which are old.
I would think that would go ok.So if I mark these and we reach hatch day could I move the extra eggs into the incubator? She has at least 6 "extra" that didn't get laid until after she went went broody or will she continue to incubate the newest ones on her own?
