One of our bantam golden laced cochins had started laying eggs in late December when she was 6 months old, and we have a rooster so she may have laid some fertile eggs. She’s been sitting on them and is all fluffed up, so she has probably gone broody. I've heard it is dangerous for a hen to go broody in the winter and it can get pretty cold where we live. We also have to go abroad in early February and a local farm had agreed to keep our chickens for a month until we came back, but they said they wouldn't be able to take care of a broody hen. Should we break her broodiness? We want to remove the eggs but feel very guilty doing so. She's been sitting on them for 4 days.
