Brooding hen

I have reported recently that one of our hens became broody. This video shows how we introduced some eggs for her to incubate. Alas, though setting her up with the eggs was straightforward, we made a huge mistake by trying to move her and the eggs a week before hatching was due. The result was the eggs never hatched.

yes, as i remember from my grandma, the brooding hen should never be moved, even if she settled herself on the top of the manure "mountain" outside
