Should I let my hen who had a prolapsed vent go broody?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My little girl just had a prolapsed vent a few days ago, she's very prone to having soft shelled eggs and what not. Today she layed a thin shelled egg. And doesn't seem to be having any issues but I am skeptical. She wants to sit on the egg (it's not fertilized) but if I let her go broody she will stop laying which should help her heal I suppose? idunno.gif

Does anyone know or think this would be a good idea?

Or could it create more issues?

I'm no expert, but it seems a broody spell would give her a rest from egg laying and couldn't hurt and may give her some time to heal up?
