Hi all, I've recently purchased my first lot of fertile eggs to put under broody hens. One of my chickens sitting on the clutch for 4 weeks. Another went broody in this time and has been sitting for 2 weeks (they were sharing the eggs). 2 chickens have hatched and the one who has been sitting for 2 weeks is now mothering them, but I'm a little concerned. She has green diarrhoea which in my googling I have found could be dehydration? There's plenty of fresh water for her and the chicks, but I also noticed that every time the hen drinks, she just drops it all on the ground. At first I thought she was softening up food for the chicks because they were coming and eating from it afterward, but now with the diarrhoea, I'm getting concerned. Of lesser concern (but I'm still getting worried) the other hen has been sitting for almost 5 weeks now. There's still one egg that hasn't hatched, but I floated it and according to the results there's a live chick in there. I thought I'd wait it out an extra week to see if it hatches, but I'm worried about the health of the chicken - and her stubbornness if nothing hatches. Should I try and kick her off the nest or should she be alright for a little while longer? Any advice/suggestions on either issue would be much appreciated! I've tried searching through past posts, but haven't come upon anything that sounds like what I'm experiencing. Thanks so much to everyone here for being such a great resource for a new chicken owner!
