Hi, I have a BCM that seems to have gone broody. For 2 days, she has been sitting in the nesting box on everyone's eggs, and pecked me when I tried to get them out. They stopped being fertile about a week ago (rooster left about a moth ago) , but I DO have babies that hatched 2 days ago in the incubator.

I've read that you have to let them hatch their own, and then add extras, but is there any chance she will take these babies tonight, it would sure beat having them in my bathtub;)

Thanks,
Heather

Oh, and this is her first time acting this way.
