broody hens

I have two hens that have gone broody. They’ve been sitting on eggs for around 2 weeks. I’ve never had hens hatch their own eggs before and I’m not positive it will work, but I’m letting them sit anyway. I also have no idea how many eggs they’re sitting on.

Part of me is terrified that they will hatch something like twenty chicks and I will just be sitting here not knowing what to do with my life. It’s kind of a silly experiment for someone who already has too many eggs.

But it’s a new experience and one I think will be kind of neat. If it works out. Should know in a week and a half or so.
