I have a broody hen sitting on 3 eggs. I have no clue if these eggs are fertile eggs, but I'm just gonna let her sit on them and see what happens. My question is this, do broody hens get out of the nest box to eat and drink? If so, I have her penned up during the day in the nest box she is laying in and have some chicken wire covering her to protect her from the other hens. In the evenings, I shut the hens out and take off the chicken wire so she can come out and eat and drink something. Is this the right thing to do? She is not showing me any indications that she is coming out of her box. I want to be sure she has nourishment of some kind. Thanks for any input.
