Post how can i get my hen to sit on her eggs.
i have a trio of hybrid red jungle fowl. the first hen laid 12 eggs and sit on them so i moved her out of the pen. the second hen just keeps laying and wont sit on her eggs. she now has sixteen eggs and wont sit on them. i've tried lowering her protein in her diet, dimming the lights, and recently, i just moved out the broodcock. i know they come from a good line of layers since the two hens are sisters. Anyone have any other suggestions i should try out? THanks.
