We would like for her to keep her and her eggs together, we do not want her to reject them.
Im assuming the rehabber was educated to get her license.. did they not cover some of this in her classes?.. Im not trying to be smart A..really.. I was wondering what is coverd.. I'am kind of wondering why they make folks get the licenses to begin with, if they do not help them know what to do..
the above advice sounds like your only option.. but with wild birds it is hard to tell.. my husband saved some duck's eggs at a contruction site.. the nest was going to be destroyed..so he brought the eggs home and put them under our broody hen.. they hatched in about 7 days..that hen was so proud of those ducklings..lol... if all does not go well..perhaps someone you know has some chickens sitting.. just an idea..
