My hen went broody and, thinking she'd give up soon (since she didn't seem too serious) we took the eggs from her for a week. So finally she got fed up and refused to let us take them. She sat on them. For 3 weeks. Nothing happened. Thinking maybe some new eggs were laid in her nest later (we marked the eggs on day 7) we decided to give her an extra week. It was up yesterday. Now she's been on the nest for 5 weeks, and she looks very pale and tired. She is determined to hatch those eggs, and it is obviously not gonna happen. I have 3 other broodies in the coop with her, and I worry that if I take her eggs she'll just try to steal theirs. I worry that if I giver her more eggs, she'll die before they hatch. How long her body can take this, I don't know. I only have 2 hens laying right now, so eggs are scarce and I worry that she would just fail again. What do I do?
