Thread Starter 
if a hen is broody and none of her eggs hatch or survive will she go back to normal? We had to hatch that didnt survive neither full made it out of the egg before they died

Aww, sorry, some will keep sitting for up to about two months before becoming unbroody. Otherwise relocating her or blocking her nest can help break her.

Thanks but it was a interesting experiment. She has four that have yet to hatch we shall see if they make it or not.

Most broodies will sit on anything, even nothing. I wonder if she was able to turn the correctly.
