Egg laying : LUSENET : U.K. Smallholders : One Thread

My chcicken does not appear to be sitting on here eggs much she is either standing over them or sitting to the side. Is this normal? What can i do?

Has she already been sitting on the eggs? If not, she probably just isn't ready to go broody yet. If she has been sitting and has stopped and is now acting like this, the eggs may not have been developing properly and she knew it. They might have been infertile or something. If she were mine, I think I would remove the eggs and let her try again. I don't know of any way to make a bird sit on eggs when they don't want to do it.
