I have a 8/9 month old Black Australorp who has gone broody a few times before but she stopped once I took the eggs. I accidentally left one of my nest boxes for a few days last week and she has been sitting on eggs. She had 3 golf balls under her, along with 8 eggs (one I broke). I candled them all and they are about 72 hours old. I feel bad taking them away now. It is getting pretty cold here. Is it ok if she hatches a clutch going into the winter? I'm sure this has been asked before...
