Have a Buff Orpington (among others) who has decided to brood. She seems to be in a trance of sorts. Will she eat or drink during this phase? If I let her go ahead and sit on eggs will she come out of it once chicks hatch? So far I have separated her from the other hens as she wasn't letting the others lay in the nest box (so I was finding eggs all over.) Should I break her of the brood instead of letting her sit? So far only 2 eggs under her as I have been removing them daily until yesterday. Thanks for any help. New to the forum.
