Hello! sorry if this has been covered elsewhere---there's just so much info here! My Australorp hen has gone broody--I've moved her, isolated her to a cooler cage for a few days, given her cool baths and had her sit on ice packs, but she won't quit. It has just been about a week and a half though, so maybe I need to try for longer? Anyhow, I was thinking of getting her a few eggs to hatch out. Is that safe? Can eggs spread anything to my little flock? I was just planing on leaving her in the side of the chicken ark she has taken over. Any input (or ideas of how to de-broodyize her) are appreciated!
