Same Hen brooding different batches of eggs

Postby JalanEmerald » Wed Jul 27, 2011 6:12 am

I have three hens but two of them do not go broody often while the third one loves to brood eggs ( whether hers or not). Does it affect the hen if I let it brood continuously on three batches of eggs? Some said that I should remove the eggs )not hers) and let the hen rest while others said that it is okay.

Anyone know for sure? I do want that single mother hen to stay healthy as she successfully hatched every single batch of her own eggs!

Thanks.
