Up until today I thought I only had one laying hen. But today I found two eggs in the nest. They look almost like the same color. Do buff Orpington and partridge rocks eggs look the same?
Do you have a rooster to fertilize the eggs?chickenmommy said:Well I caught my buff Orpington laying an egg in the nest today. And the eggs that I have been eating have the bullseye on them. If I keep the eggs in the nest how will I know if they will be able to be hatched. I mean does the chicken have to sit on them for a certain amount of time a day for them to continue to be viable? Any help appreciated
Exactly! She will leave the nest usually once a day to get food, water, and to go potty.kjohnstone said:When you go to collect eggs, and a hen who is not currently laying an egg is sitting on them and will not willingly get out of your way, you've got broody.
