ok so my little Bantam hen, will not sit.. so far she has started sitting on 3 clutches. the first clutch, he looked at. didn't touch, and was more then 20 feet away from the eggs, and 30 minutes later she scattered the eggs, and quit sitting.
she then found a new spot, layed eggs, and started sitting again. again partway through it we accidently found it, and she quit sitting (her nest was hidden in a pile of old tires).
the 3rd time she layed eggs under the deck. no biggie. she was sitting and had been sitting about 16? days. all of a sudden she just quits. we went and got the eggs, and cracked one open and it was completely full of yellow goop. i assume it was rotten?
what is wrong with this chicken and what can we do to get her to sit, and successfully hatch a clutch of eggs.
