One of my buff orpingtons went broody Feb 3. After three nights staying in the nest box I figured she was serious about it so I moved her to a brooding pen and gave her some fertile eggs. She's been sitting great since. HOWEVER, other than the first day she was in there, I do not believe she's pooped. The first day she did a huge unmistakable broody poop, but there have been no others. She's alone in this pen and it's about 5 X 3 feet so it's not as if she might have pooped somewhere and I just can't find it. I have picked her up and checked and there is no poop in the nest. I believe she has gotten up at least twice to eat and drink because on those days I noticed her little bowl of water had gone down and her food had peck marks, but she's been sitting for 15 days! I usually feed my chickens fermented feed so I put a plop of it on the edge of her nest a few times and she did eat that, and since it's wet I suppose she's gotten some water from it. My concern really is the lack of poop though. This morning her comb and wattles look quite pale. I have physically removed her from the nest but she just sits on the ground right where I put her and I worry her eggs would get too cold so I put her back on after a few minutes. It's warm today, maybe I should put her off the nest again and wait longer. I don't know. I have incubators, I can finish the eggs for her and break her broodiness... She's only nine months old and this is her first time being broody. I don't want her to kill herself!
